The popular Disney Channel series stars Avenue Q's Tartaglia and teaches children "about magic in the world around them." The live program, geared toward preschoolers, will also include the music of Disney Channel's Choo-Choo Soul.
"Johnny and the Sprites" is set in "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," according to show notes.
John Tartaglia, who received a Tony nomination for his Broadway debut in Avenue Q, has also appeared on Broadway in Beauty and the Beast. Tartaglia stars as Pinocchio in the Broadway-bound musical incarnation of Shrek, which currently plays Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre.
