Fun Saturday Morning: Karen K & The Jitterbugs

  • Mill River Playground

Bug Out! with Karen K in her imaginary backyard fort where she makes music with her friends, the Jitterbugs: Bumble (the bee who doesn’t like to sting); Stinky (loves playing outside, refuses baths); Hop (lots of energy, not a lot of self-control); Slug Bug (needs a LOT of naps); and her best friend, Lightning (thinks he’s a superhero…and Karen believes him). In this crowd-engaging, theatrical show, Karen takes audience members young and old on a musical adventure exploring themes of kindness, friendship and downright fun. The Jitterbugs will have kids up and dancing to Karen’s catchy, upbeat, genre-swirling songs, while leaving adults asking for more.

One of the most buzzed about bands for families and kids on the East Coast, Karen K & the Jitterbugs have received multiple national awards, including a Parents’ Choice Fun Stuff Award and Best KidVid of 2014.
