It's Not Naptime when two-time Grammy® nominee for Best Children's Album (Jungle Gym, 2011; Recess, 2014) Justin Roberts pulls up in his Yellow Bus with his band of Not Ready for Naptime Players. Revealing new silly songs, discerning diddies and Pop Fly lullabies, THE MYSTERIOUS HAT is a brand new concert experience designed especially for the New Vic. Join the kiddie mosh pit and bop along to catchy compositions of happy harmonies, bursts of brass and hand-clapping choruses that make these rockers America's favorite powerpop poets for the young and young at heart.
