Youth Production Graces Stage at Minnetrista!

Muncie, IN—Forty-seven energetic and talented youths will fill the stage during Summer Stage Fest at Minnetrista on July 29 and 30 in Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr., a production by the Muncie Civic Theatre.

Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. brings many memorable educational songs from the animated television shorts of the 1970’s to life in this fun filled performance, made up entirely of a cast of youth from the area community. Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. begins as a young teacher wakes for his first day of work and begins to rehearse his teaching technique, before he knows it Tom’s technique takes on a life of its own! Director Tonya Kunkle has had her hands full in coordinating all of the kids for this show. “Corralling this many youths daily to perfect the production and keep morale high takes patience, vision and dedication”, said Kunkle, “they’re working hard and are a great group of kids!”

Schoolhouse Rock Live! Jr. will begin at 7:30 p.m. on July 29 and 30 on the East Lawn at Minnetrista as part of the Summer Stage Fest at Minnetrista series. Bring a blanket, picnic basket and your family out for an exciting evening of musical entertainment by the Muncie Civic Theatre, a free community event.

Located along historic White River, Minnetrista includes 40 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds, a modern museum facility, an historic home, Nature Area, numerous sculptures, and a portion of the White River Greenway. Minnetrista serves East Central Indiana with dynamic community activities and exhibits that honor and reflect its natural and cultural heritage. For more information about Minnetrista, visit
