VeggieTales Are Live At Abba's House Thursday

Monday, October 25, 2010

The VeggieTales Live stage show comes to Abba's House in Hixson on Thursday as Bob, Larry and the whole crew take to the stage with "the silliest Silly Song Countdown ever."

Alan Knowles said, "They have prepared the best of the best, the most classic of the classic, and the absolute silliest of the silly. But sometimes silliness just isn't enough. Archie prefers lesson songs, Mr. Lunt wants to sing about food, and Jimmy and Jerry are stuck in the 80s. Everyone wants their turn, and their songs in the show, but there's only so much time.

"The entire VeggieTales crew will have to learn the importance of sharing to make this show work.

"A high-energy song and dance spectacular for the whole family, this show will have you singing along, dancing in the aisles and smiling so hard your teeth will ache."

Fan favorites include classic silly songs such as His Cheeseburger, I Love My Lips, The Hairbrush Song, and more.

The VeggieTales Live Sing Yourself Silly Tour is produced by DMI Concerts in association with Big Idea Productions.

“Big Idea’s mission of reinforcing the spiritual and moral fabric of society through creative media and the Veggie’s appeal to our children makes this tour a special event,” said Mr. Knowles, of DMI Concerts.

“The stage show ’s satirical references to pop culture and
current events creates a relevant-to-life message delivered by 5 to 10 feet tall singing vegetables. It’s a great break from video games, Internet and TV.”

Abba’s House is located at 5208 Hixson Pike.

Tickets are available at
www.dmiconcerts.com, Abba’s House Bookstore, Memorial Auditorium Box Office, 423-642-TIXS and will be available at the door on Thursday.
