The Wig­gles land in Philadel­phia for two shows

The Morning Call - - GO GUIDE - By Jes­sica John­son

Chances are that if you have a preschoole­r or tod­dler run­ning around your house, then you cer­tainly know who The Wig­gles are.

The world’s #1 preschool en­ter­tain­ers are bring­ing their big­gest live U.S. tour in nearly a decade to the Mer­riam The­ater at Kim­mel Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter in Philadel­phia for two shows at noon and 4 p.m. on Satur­day.

The Wig­gles Party Time Tour! is sup­port­ing the new Party Time! al­bum, which was re­leased ear­lier this sum­mer. It will be the first chance for most of Amer­ica to see in-per­son the first-ever fe­male Wig­gle, Emma (who hap­pens to be a fa­vorite of both boys and girls alike), who has be­come an in­ter­na­tional sen­sa­tion. Emma, Lachy, Si­mon and An­thony will hit the stage with their friends Cap­tain Feather­sword, Dorothy the Di­nosaur, Henry the Oc­to­pus, Wags the Dog and a brand-new Wig­gly friend, Shirley Shawn the Uni­corn.

The per­for­mances will have par­ents and chil­dren alike danc­ing and singing along to the clas­sics like “Hokey Pokey,” “Head, Shoul­ders, Knees and Toes” and “Si­mon Says.” Other high­lights in­clude join­ing Emma as she per­forms Ir­ish, bal­let and other bow-tiful danc­ing; lis­ten­ing to An­thony play his gui­tar, banjo and bag­pipes, and if, by some chance Lachy falls asleep, the crowd can call out “Wake up Lachy!” to get him mov­ing.

Tick­ets for The Wig­gle’s Party Time Tour! are on sale now, are $40 and are avail­able via www.thewig­gles.com, www.kim­mel­cen­ter.org, and by phone at 215-893-1999. Chil­dren un­der 12 months are $5. The Mer­riam The­ater at Kim­mel Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter is lo­cated at 250 S. Broad St., Philadel­phia.
