Ukulele U

About the Show

UKULELE U is a musical children’s show in which MELANIE DOANE, our host, encourages viewers at home to sing, move, and learn along with a cast of charming, relatable and diverse kids known as the UKE TROUPE.

Building upon classic musical kids’ programming like Sharon, Lois & Bram, The Wiggles, Yo Gabba Gabba and The Doodlebops, UKULELE U aims to recapture the sense of community and togetherness fostered by feel-good 60s and 70s live musical TV shows like Singalong Jubilee and Hootenanny while adding its own special focus: actively emboldening viewers at home to MAKE music, not just listen to it. From start to finish, Melanie will have audiences singing along with her and the Uke Troupe through singalong lessons and engaging music videos. 

Backed by a world-class team including Melanie Doane, award-winning recording artist, groundbreaking music teacher and Executive Director of USchool; Michael Hirsh, Emmy and Gemini Award-winning founder of Nelvana and WOW! Unlimited Media and creator of hit music series The Doodlebops; Andrea Nevitt, Senior producer with many series and television shows to her credit, including The Doodlebops. David Connolly, esteemed director and choreographer of shows and major musicals including The Moblees, The Doodlebops, Hairspray and Mamma Mia; and Bob Ezrin, one of the world’s foremost producers of popular music and founder of the Nimbus School of Recording Arts. UKULELE U will feature timeless classic songs as well as kidified versions of chart-topping pop hits only available through decades-worth of industry connections.

The result is a fun and inclusive musical variety show designed to have kids everywhere singing along at home. Filled with song and dance, authenticity and heart, UKULELE U will inspire, educate, encourage, and engage — striving to empower each and every child’s creative spirit through music and movement.
