Don’t like to sit still?

This show’s for you.

Children and adults are encouraged to stand up and shake out their wiggles at Disney Junior Live On Tour! “Pirate &Princess Adventure” on Jan. 18 at Xfinity Arena.

“The show is very interactive,” spokeswoman Jenifer Maninger said. “It’s a great way to expose young children to live theater. They don’t have to sit in a seat and be quiet. It is geared for young children to experience their first theater show.”

The show, part of a 100-city tour, features some of Disney’s hottest properties, she said: Mickey and Minnie; characters from “Sofia the First” and “Jake and the Never Land Pirates”; Doc McStuffins, the 6-year-old doctor who provides tender love and care to stuffed toys and animals.

“The audience will be taken to the land of Enchancia, where along with Sofia and all of her friends will help her prepare the friendship festival,” Maninger said.

Cinderella visits the castle to help Sofia in her mission to find the right present.

“The kids will be asked to get up on their feet and learn the manners dance along with the Sofia and all her friends,” Maninger said.

Grownups can get up and dance, too.

Then it’s off to Never Land where Jake and his swashbuckling friends Izzy and Cubby, with a little help from Peter Pan and Tinker Bell, battle Captain Hook to unlock treasure hidden inside a mysterious volcano.

“Again they will be asked to get up out of their seats,” she said, “to learn a pirate jig.”

Yes, there will be pixie dust.
