The Johnny Shortcake Show


Oct 27, 2018 to Nov 4, 2018
02:00 PM until 03:30 PM

This event occurs weekly, on Sunday and Saturday.


Themed around celebrating silliness, this show features soul music for children and teaches important life lessons. With engaging and relatable songs such as “Cupcake Tuesday,” “Brushing Your Teeth,” and “Grandma’s Whiskers,” the show aims to celebrate childhood in a way that will have parents laughing along.

Johnny Shortcake is a kid-centric personality of David Sweeny, who has made a name for himself in the Philadelphia music and arts scene under his other persona – Johnny Showcase. Described as equal parts Andy Kaufman and Prince, Johnny Showcase has gained a following and become something of a funky Philly folk hero legend.  In 2016, Johnny and Philadelphia folk rocker Ross Bellenoit embarked on their latest mission to create a musical for kids, and with that, Johnny Shortcake was born.
