Directed jointly by the music and theater faculty of the Patel Conservatory, the collaboration among the directors will offer students the experience of working with multiple directors and the audience the opportunity to enjoy collaborative creativity at its finest.

Performances are Thursday, Nov. 5 and Friday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 7 and Sunday, Nov. 8 at 1 and 4 p.m. Regularly priced tickets to Schoolhouse Rock Live!
