The best children’s shows place a high premium on audience interaction, unlike the opera or traffic court. Rustle up some kid-friendly fun with this GrouponLive deal to see Yo Gabba Gabba! Live: Get the Sillies Out! at Toyota Presents Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford. For $30, you get one G-Pass for seating in sections 204–206 on Saturday, February 9, at 5 p.m. (up to a $62 value, including fees). Doors open at 4 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
The hit Nickelodeon children’s program Yo Gabba Gabba! bounds from the small screen to the big stage in a show filled with cartoonish critters and boundless dancing. Beloved by hip preschoolers and savvy postschoolers for its eye-popping sets, catchy songs, respect for intellect, and absence of Shrek, Yo Gabba Gabba! teaches inner and outer children valuable life lessons without stooping to condescension. For the special Get the Sillies Out! tour, favorite adorable toy monsters such as Brobee, Foofa, Plex, and Biz Markie join human surrogates DJ Lance Rock (and sometimes BeDazzler queen Leslie Hall) for an onstage celebration of imagination. Kids and parents will delight to hear fan favorites from previous tours––such as the Aquabats’ “Pool Party” and “I Like to Dance” by the whole Gabba Gang––along with a few surprises. Mixing animation, games, and new songs with classic bits from the television show, the Technicolor mise en scène and infectious energy of Yo Gabba Gabba! gives children enough confidence to apply to college after elementary school.<p> <iframe width="450" height="243" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/bIwQmg_ouo4" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen="allowFullScreen"></iframe> Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event.
