Seatbelts everyone! The Magic School Bus® celebrates its 30th Anniversary with an all-new musical adventure.

Ms. Frizzle’s students are putting on a play about global warming, and they need some cold, hard facts. The Friz and her reptilian sidekick, Liz, know just where to find them!  This is no ordinary field trip, as a hop on the Magic School Bus takes the class and the audience on a whirlwind tour. From the arctic to the equator, they see telltale signs of climate change and learn how conservation, recycling and alternative energy can make a difference. Ms Frizzle and her class are up for the climate challenge. Are you?
