Summerfest Family Theatre - Groovy Nate

Thursday, Jul 29, 2021 from 10:00am to 10:45am


From clowns and magicians, to Emmy-awarding winning musicians and puppeteers, the Summerfest Family Theatre has brought high-quality entertainment to Frederick youngsters for over sixteen years!

From a modest beginning highlighting three programs throughout the summer, the series has grown to feature seven, full-length performances by some of the most sought-after children’s performers in the region. Kids’ sensations Laurie Berkner and Milkshake have both been part of the series, exposing more children than ever to the magic of the performing arts.

Groovy Nate is a children’s entertainer and Wolf Trap Teaching Artist who creates fun and educational shows using exotic musical instruments and puppet skits- a la Sesame Street meets Parliament/Funkadelic, meshed with The Electric Company, Kraftwerk, and Dub Reggae. The shows encourage children and adults to move, sing, and play creatively with one another, while exposing them to various genres of music.

Nate’s first children’s CD, “Meet Groovy Nate” combines the interactive nature of his performances and classes with songs about sharing, inner beauty, eating healthy foods and the joy of reading. For the past nine years, Groovy Nate’s Music and Movement classes in Northern Virginia have drawn families who return over and over again to enjoy the interactivity in every class. Children sing, play instruments and games, engage in creative play, and move to original and traditional music.
