Hitting the road from the Idea Warehouse on their 2012 Rock-O-Matic tour, the Imagination Movers bring the music and fun of their Emmy-winning Disney Channel show to the stage of the Akron Civic Theatre. The four-piece band of problem solvers plays kid-friendly tunes in a wide range of energetic styles, from rock and pop to ska and funk. Clad in blue jumpsuits, Dave, Rich, Smitty, and Scott launch into the brassy, bouncy introduction of the Imagination Movers theme song, followed by a set list punctuated with opportunities for audience interaction for the kids, musical references to U2, Jack Johnson, and other famous bands for the parents, and onstage silliness for crying clowns.
The jaw-droppingly ornate Civic Theatre frames the action. Within the 1920s fever dream of a Moorish castle, every surface pulsates with intricate patterns, from the carved ceilings and fringy chandelier of the grand lobby to the palatial skyline that forms the proscenium arch. Violet seas toss a sailing ship across the mural that is the stage's backdrop, and all the while, wisps of clouds drift across the indigo ceiling as star lights twinkle.
