The Central Park was packed with children and families as ABC Preschool hosted its 2nd Annual Easter Show on Saturday, April 8th.

Opening the show was the Easter Bunny and his friends. Between dances and giveaways, children were enraptured. After the bunny’s performance, the San Pedro Dance Academy provided intermission entertainment with a cultural dance selection. They were followed by “Despicable Me” villain Gru, along with his mischievous Minions from and back up dancers onstage. The audience was delighted, laughing and singing along to the “Banana Song”.
Next onstage were the popular Disney princesses Cinderella, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Elsa from Frozen, and Princess Sophia. They charming characters had the youngsters smiling and cheering loudly.
On course, no show would be complete without superheroes! Wonder Woman, Super Man, Spiderman, Joker, and Batman all came to life at the park, to the delight of their screaming fans.
During intermission, the San Pedro Dance Academy performed another cultural piece before the final presentation. Personalities from Paw Patrol, a television series about six rescue dogs and a tech-savy boy, Ryder, had youngsters super excited and singing along.
