Tonies presents: Laurie Berkner SOLO!



Laurie’s Greatest Hits solo show, presented by Tonies

Recognized as “the queen of kids’ music” by People magazine, Laurie Berkner is a singer, songwriter, performer, author, and founder of Two Tomatoes Records, LLC. With more than 1 billion total streams and millions of CDs and DVDs sold, Laurie’s songs have become beloved classics for children worldwide.

 What sets Laurie apart? She displays an instinctive understanding of children’s natural rhythms and energy, which keeps kids enraptured and brings parents and caregivers happily along for the ride. Laurie finds inspiration in her audience. “I want to create songs that matter for children,” she says. “I was singing once and saw a four-year-old girl shut her eyes and start swaying to the music. I thought, ‘That’s the reason I got into music.’ It keeps me wanting to do more.”

Laurie’s Greatest Hits solo show features her classic songs like Bumblebee (Buzz Buzz)The Goldfish (Let’s Go Swimming)We Are The Dinosaurs, and Rocketship Run, as well as newer hits like Waiting for the Elevator, My Bunny Goes Hop, and Chipmunk at the Gas Pump, plus – as a special treat for fans – a few well-loved Laurie Berkner songs that are not often heard at Laurie’s full-band concerts! Kids should plan to bring their dancing shoes and a stuffed animal (for their heads). This matinee show starts at 11:00 AM and runs approximately 1 hour. 

*Babies under 1-year-old sitting in laps are free—please contact the box office directly.
