The Backstage Beat’s Ange Alex took her family out Saturday October 23rd to see this live show in action! From the beginning, they were very aware of the fact that most of the audience was under five. The Fox Theatre was nearly at capacity with families from all over the south. The show started right on time with DJ Lance on a giant screen, saying how he wished he could be here in Atlanta with all of us. Then the door on the screen opened and out he ran!! Screams from tiny voices filled the venue and the show went off with a bang!
Right before the intermission break, tons of balloons fell from the sky as happy children danced with their new balloons. How ingenious of them to do that, it certainly kept the kids occupied during the break.
It was an all around great experience for families. I definitely suggest that you look up the tour and check it out in a city near you!
