Based on the hit animated TV series on Nickelodeon, PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” is coming to South Africa with its brand new tour, which brings everybody’s favourite pups to the stage for an action-packed, high-energy, musical adventure.
When Mayor Goodway goes missing during the day of the Great Adventure Bay Race, the pups come to the rescue. Join Ryder, Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Rubble, Zuma, Sky and Everest for the show’s first tour in South Africa, which runs Johannesburg, October 20 - 21 at the Ticketpro Dome and in Cape Town, October 27 - 28 at Grand Arena, Grand West.
Featuring a cast of everybody’s favourite PAW Patrol characters and presented by VStar Entertainment Group, Nickelodeon and TEG Life Like Touring, PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue,” shows that “no job is too big, no pup is too small,” and shares lessons for all ages about citizenship, social skills and problem-solving as the characters each use their unique skills and teamwork.
The show includes two acts and an intermission, and engages audiences with Bunraku puppetry, an innovative costuming approach that brings the PAW Patrol characters to life on stage with their vehicles and packs.
“Using Bunraku, puppetry elements are built into costumes worn by real actors to create a wonderful combination of life-size pups and to make a stronger connection with the audience. The PAW Patrol cast sings and dances, which brings a fun, realistic parallel between the animated series and the live show,” says Jim Waters, producer, VStar Entertainment Group.
Tasania Parsadh, Channel Director for Nickelodeon in Africa said, “We are delighted that one of our most successful properties from is coming to life to entertain and engage South African kids and families. We hope that kids and their parents get ready to do the ‘Pup Pup Boogie’ with us”.
The performance features up-tempo music and a brand new cleverly written script that is a good introduction to live theatre for kids. Classic theatrical scenery along with a high-tech video wall visually transports families to an authentic PAW Patrol environment, including locations from the TV series, like Adventure Bay, The Lookout, Seal Island, Farmer Yumi's farm and Jake's Mountain.
Special interactive video allows the audience to participate via interviews, solve clues with the Pups, follow Mayor Goodway and much more.
