About this show

A sing-the-songs, dance-the-dances, get-on-the-stage, win-the-prizes, good-old-fashioned English Music Hall musical revue for kids 2 to 102! All Join In is a delightful, interactive world premiere musical afternoon of favorite songs and scenes from such popular Rudie-DeCarlo Family Theatre productions as Cinderella, Alice and the Wonderful Tea Party, Barnyard Madness, All the World's A Stage, The Amazing American Melodrama, Beauty and the Beast, Dorothy's Adventures in Oz and more. Like the British Musical Hall events of olde, everyone "joins in," singing along with their favorite characters to projected lyrics or follow along in activity-song books which they get to keep. There are prizes to win, and the chance to actively participate on stage. Commissioned to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Santa Monica Playhouse Family Theatre Musical Matinee series, All Join In features original music by Evelyn Rudie, Chris DeCarlo and Matthew Wrather, musical direction by Serena Dolinsky, and is performed by Actors' Repertory Theatre members Celeste Akiki, Kate Burleigh, James Cooper, Melissa Gentry, Nima Ghassemian and Cydne Moore joined by Carolyn Freeman Champ, Shannon Martinous and cameo appearances by Playhouse alumni from around the world. "You won't find more professional theatre - for children or adults - anywhere." - L.A. PARENT
