‘Let’s All Join In’ the fun at Santa Monica Playhouse

From left, Celeste Akiki, Carolyn Freeman Champ and Melissa Gentry join Madame Announcer (Katherine Washington) to encourage the audience to join them in a rousing sing-a-long, dance-a-long production number.

“All Join In: A Fairytale Sing-A-Long Afternoon” is a must-see for every little girl and boy and family in L.A. this holiday season because clapping, singing, and dancing along with the performers is highly encouraged. Colorful, lovable characters, dressed in dazzling costumes and bright wigs, entertain kids of all ages “from 1 to 92.” This is a treat indeed, with lots of kid-friendly karaoke and interactive fun.

Some lucky audience members may even be invited on stage to win a special raffle prize, including concession snacks, and tickets for upcoming Santa Monica Playhouse productions. There is never a dull moment, as the cast engages the young audience and friends (birthday parties welcome!) with songs from beloved Mother Goose tales that feature a modern, clever twist. Going from Wonderland to Neverland to Oz, “All Join In” takes its audience on a journey to the most magical places. While all in good fun, this musical revue contains songs with important messages about friendship and self esteem (even the dangers of junk food!). One song relays: “We all have a special side to show the world…”

For a family day of fun, frolic, and fantasy, “All Join In” is the perfect ticket. With fairy tales to share, the amazing ensemble of singers and dancers brings the pictures on the page to life, painting a canvas of rainbows on stage. A special holiday themed show will be presented during December.

The show runs Saturdays and Sundays December 4 through 12 at 12:30 and 3 p.m. The Santa Monica Playhouse is located at 1211 4th St. For more information, call (310) 394-9779, ext. 2.
