As a conscientious mother, I’m constantly focused on raising a happy, healthy child, and this past weekend, my daughter, Jayda, and I experienced an amazing musical theater production that supports parents like me in doing just that. Billed as a “one-of-a-kind interactive musical experience for kids ages 3 to 8,” The Ohmies is a lively musical adventure that encourages preschoolers to develop positive skills for good health and well-being.

The show features Bella Butterfly and her little brother, Carlin Caterpillar, two, spirited, colorful characters who take the audience on an engaging learning adventure. When Bella leads her brother—and the audience—in planting a “wish garden,” whereby they plant wish seeds so their wishes can come true, she realizes that Mr. Sun is not yet awake (to warm the earth and help the seeds grow), and sets off to Sweeping Bluff to wake him up. Along the way, she and her brother meet a cast of compelling characters, who all help them get where they need to go—and to achieve their goal.

Children in the audience sit on a large mat in front of the stage, and, wearing only socks on their feet, follow along as Bella teaches everyone to fly like a butterfly—after which Gisbert Grasshopper shows them how to hop far and wide, Sylvio Snake teaches them to slither like a snake, and more—by stretching and jumping, and employing yoga fundamentals like downward dog and butterfly. I was thrilled to watch Jayda laughing and leaping along—and getting a nice little workout while having fun—throughout the entire show.

Along with offering appealing music and infectious interactive fun, The Ohmies also present a bunch of valuable messages to preschoolers: The importance of making friends and working together to achieve signficant goals, as well as getting along with siblings, learning to make healthy choices, and overcoming fears and anxieties. When The Ohmies are distressed, a bunch of dark clouds—The Worries—appear in the sky, but the characters all sing, dance, and laugh them off, and soon realize they can “shake off the worries” to make them go away. I loved this message—and Jayda loved how it was presented.

As Bella tells her friends time and time again, “Besties always help each other,” and the BFFs in this show do more than that—they help preschoolers learn a lot about themselves and the world around them, while having a fantastic time singing, dancing, and enjoying the show.
