It’s all about kids tonight at the Levitt Pavilion as the riverside entertainment venue kicks off this summer’s series of shows for the younger set with a performance by Justin Roberts & The Not Ready for Naptime Players.

The free show, starting at 7 p.m. on the Levitt’s lawn, is the first in the Melissa & Doug Children's Series. The lawn and concession opens an hour before showtime.

Music by Justin Roberts & The Not Ready for Naptime Players has earned the group seven Parents' Choice Gold Awards and a Grammy nomination.

The Melissa & Doug Children's Series will feature nine free kid-centric shows by performers in the world of children's entertainment, according to publicity from the Levitt. Youngsters are also invited to stop by the Melissa & Doug hospitality tent for complimentary goodies before the show.
