STORY PIRATES ENGAGE EVEN THE TINEST OF ATTENTION SPANS IN DON'T JUST SIT THERE!

The Pirates Give Little Ones Something to Stand Up and Dance About With New Interactive Musical for Toddlers at the Geffen Playhouse

LOS ANGELES, April 20, 2012 – The Geffen Playhouse Story Pirates return to Saturday Scene with a special show created just for the tiniest of attention spans – specifically those belonging to kids ages two to five.  Don’t Just Sit There! An Interactive Musical for Toddlers and Big Kids stays true to Story Pirate’s code – performing stories written by kids – only this time they’ll sing, dance and encourage even the littlest ones to get involved with the action.  With a hilarious series of sketch comedy musical numbers based on tales the Pirates have already collected as well as from audience participation, Don’t Just Sit There! is specially calibrated to get toddlers to stand up and get movin’!

Don’t Just Sit There! is recommended for ages two to five and will perform in the Gil Cates Theater at the Geffen Playhouse on Saturday, April 14 at 11:00 a.m.  The performance will be followed by complimentary snacks donated by returning sponsors Gelson’s Market and Pretzel Crisps.
