Goodbye Bus, Hello Emil

So, The Magic School Bus cast departed for their national tour and we started rehearsal for Emil of Lonneberga--all on the same day!!  We wish the cast of Magic School Bus all the best for their fantastic journey.  In the first week of Emil rehearsal, the actors are learning to work with their puppets and we had a special guest come to rehearsal to help pronounce  some of the Swedish names and words.

Fun Questions

Here are some of the questions that the cast of Magic School Bus have fielded at elementary schools across the Bay Area:
"Lizard, where did you get your shoes?"
"How does the sunlight get into the solar panel?"
"Do you know a lot about science"
"If all the ice melts, what happens? There’ll be a waterfall out of the glaciers?"
"Do you know why you call it CO2?"
"What are the globes on Ms. Frizzle’s shoes?"

We had two terrific performances of Magic School Bus Live! The Climate Challenge yesterday at Allendale Elementary School in Oakland.  The kids were engaged and enthusiastic through the whole assembly.  Thank you to the principal, teachers and staff who make it possible.
