Australian children's-music sensations The Wiggles have been entertaining kids with wacky singing, silly dancing, and onstage antics for 20 years. The color-coded quartet uses songs, games, and storytelling to encourage participation from pintsize audience members, fostering a sense of youthful empowerment usually found only in preteen monarchs and omnipotent Star Children. Kids and parents alike are transported to The Wiggles' magical world of Big Red Cars, feather-wielding pirates, and rose-eating dinosaurs, licensing audience members of all ages to be silly and have fun. Concertgoers experience the show safely sequestered in rear orchestra rows AA–MM at the Paramount Theatre, enjoying a non-naked mole rat's view of onstage frolics and access to smile-feeding aural nourishment.
