Critical Acclaim

70 minutes of perpetual motion and nonstop joy! Not only is every performer bursting with personality…but the irresistible triple-threat actor-singer-dancers take full command of the stage. Director-choreographer Rachel Rockwell is at her very best here. Without question, the hippest, funniest, most anthropologically mischievous musical in town.

Flashy, fantastic and just plain fun, this animated ball of fire will delight audiences of all ages. This 70-minute musical is nothing short of spectacular. It’s wild and wacky and full of laughs, aimed at both children and the adults who accompany them to the theater. A stellar cast of some of Chicago’s finest talents... every actor/singer/dancer is a star.”

“Don’t miss this opportunity…children can’t resist dancing along to 'Move It, Move It' as the actors danced around the stage and up the aisles”

Made the theater at Navy Pier rock! Directed to her usual perfection by Rachel Rockwell, this 75 minute production will capture the hearts of every audience member.”

Chicago on the Aisle​ 
“Excellent direction and choreography from one of Chicago’s best – Rachel Rockwell – as well as stunning production values and a great cast. A definite kid-pleaser that will make for the perfect Navy Pier family excursion.

“★★★★ Funny and fast-moving. If you have children in your life…bring them to this colorful, toe-tapping extravaganza.”

“Highly Recommended. This is a really fun and fabulous show…you should move it, move it and get there. Children or no children—all ages will enjoy.

The perfect summer outing… that brought out the kid in all of us.”
