LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Aurora Theatre is trying to make learning about the American presidency a little easier for children using catchy songs and fast-paced, non-partisan facts.

Under the direction of David Kote, Rock the Presidents teaches children and families about as many presidents as they can within an hour. "We really try to talk-sing about everything from George Washington to today...sprinkling in some funny and unusual stories about U.S. presidents," says Kote.

Kote says the show was created to provide a safe space to discuss American presidents and our history with children, "it's especially important in a political climate like this to inform our youth about the role of a president...and it doesn't matter what political party you're affiliated with...the musical has no political biases and is a great way to get children learning."
