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 Benedum Center. The four-piece band of problem solvers plays energetic, kid-friendly tunes in a wide range 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. The following set list entertains kids with audience interaction, keeps parents interested with musical references to U2, Jack Johnson, and other famous bands, and stops the sobbing of distressed clowns.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Benedum Center faithfully displays the original marble, woodwork, and 18-foot Grand Lobby mirrors built for the theater when it opened in 1928. The Benedum’s sparkling, signature centerpiece is the 4,700-pound original main chandelier, which portrays an elegance sadly lacking in the disco ball hanging in the president’s Oval Office.
