Children are innately drawn to sprightly music, which explains why most grade-school teachers receive certification in pied piping. Lead a pint-sized procession with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get one ticket to an Imagination Movers performance at the Tower Theater in Upper Darby (a $35 value). This Groupon is good for an orchestra-level seat at the 4:30 p.m. show on Sunday, April 10.
Disney's Emmy Award–winning Imagination Movers will perform their In a Big Warehouse concert in the grand interior of the Tower Theater, playing their most popular songs and bringing the magic of their eponymous TV series to life. The popular New Orleans–based rock band bridges all generation gaps with fun and educational songs chock-full of memorable melodies and bounding rhythms that adults love as much as kids, fueling long van drives and kindergarten karaoke. With an extravagant set and ecstatic energy, the Imagination Movers give a performance that gets audiences dancing, clapping, and singing along, with guest appearances from Playhouse Disney favorites Choo Choo Soul, Nina, and Warehouse Mouse.
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel from the days before movies were beamed from computers into audiences' brains.
