Playhouse Disney’s Johnny and the Sprites comes to Meadow Brook Music Festival on Wednesday, August 26 for two performances at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Playhouse Disney’s new live-action series Johnny and the Sprites combines the musical talent of Broadway’s best with vibrant, endearing puppet characters in a whimsical setting to create a one-of-a-kind program for preschool viewers and their families.
Starring 10-year Sesame Street veteran and 2004 Tony Award-nominee John Tartaglia, Johnny and the Sprites features music from some of the theater world’s most celebrated songwriters. The unique series welcomes young viewers and their families into a beautiful, enchanted world of whimsy where Johnny and his friends, the Sprites: Ginger, Basil, Lily and Root, sing, have fun and learn valuable life lessons about getting along together, solving problems and respecting the world around them.
Johnny and the Sprites become friends after the young singer-songwriter moves into an old country house he inherited from his great-great-great-great uncle Louie. There, Johnny discovers a secret portal that leads to Grotto’s Grove, the magical home of the Sprites, with talking flowers, pixie dust and enchanted forests. Shy and wary of people, the Sprites usually leave the Grove only at night. But one day, enticed by the sound of Johnny’s singing, Ginger, Basil, Lily and Root venture out and, after a hilarious first encounter, become fast friends with their new human neighbor.
The show’s educational goals emphasize the importance of mutual understating and tolerance. Additionally, the show presents preschoolers with a sense of community and teaches them about the environment and how their behaviors can affect the world around them. Johnny and the Sprites is part of Disney Channel’s learning-focused Playhouse Disney programming block for preschoolers.
