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 Oakdale 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.
Receiving a fresh makeover in 1997, Toyota Presents Oakdale Theatre continues a 58-year run of bringing the country’s top touring acts to its stage. A modern, wood-framed proscenium encircles performers while audiences nestle in the mischievously bright purple seating, which adds color to the room and inadvertently facilitates the covert consumption of smuggled-in eggplant.
