All paws on deck! Following the continued success of the PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” tour internationally, Nickelodeon, VStar Entertainment Group, TEG Life Like Touring and Glen21 Entertainment have announced that the second live stage show based on PAW Patrol, the top-rated preschool series produced by Spin Master Entertainment, will make its South African debut in April 2020.
The new action-packed, music-filled production, PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure,” will feature the beloved characters from the animated series, and will be playing the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg on 4 and 5 April, Sun Arena at Time Square Casino in Pretoria on 7 and 8 April, the Grand Arena, GrandWest in Cape Town on 11 and 12 April and The Globe at Suncoast in Durban on 17, 18 and 19 April 2020. Tickets to see the pups embark on this pirate-themed voyage go on sale to the general public at 10am this Tuesday 5 November 2019 through Ticketpros.
In PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure,” Mayor Goodway is getting everything shipshape for a big Pirate Day celebration in Adventure Bay. When Cap’n Turbot falls into a dark and mysterious cavern, it’s PAW Patrol to the rescue! Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Skye, Rocky and Zuma save Cap’n Turbot and discover a secret pirate treasure map that leads them on an epic adventure. Over land and on the high seas, the pups set out to find the treasure for Mayor Goodway so the celebration can go on. Things get ruff when Mayor Humdinger wants to find the treasure first for Foggy Bottom. The pups need all paws on deck for this pirate adventure, including help from the newest pup who’s all ears…Tracker! Using their heroic rescue skills, problem solving and teamwork, the pups set sail to save the day. No job is too big, no pirate pup is too small!
Similar to PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue,” which continued to tour the world in 2018 and 2019, this new show, PAW Patrol Live! “The Great Pirate Adventure,” includes two acts and an intermission, and incorporates an innovative costume approach to help bring the pups to life on stage as well as their vehicles and packs during the adventure.
“PAW Patrol Live! has become a huge touring success for Nickelodeon, with ‘Race to the Rescue’ playing to sellout crowds during its inaugural year on the road,” said Gerald Raines, Senior Vice President, Global Location Based Experiences, Nickelodeon Group. “In response to massive demand, we’re delighted to roll out PAW Patrol Live! ‘The Great Pirate Adventure,’giving kids and families across the country an opportunity to go on a brand new adventure with the heroic pack of pups.”
“We’re incredibly excited to be back working with Nickelodeon, VStar Entertainment and TEG Life Like Touring to bring PAW Patrol fans a completely new and memorable experience with their favourite pups on the stage in 2020,” said Glen Netshipise, Director, Glen21 Entertainment. “Like ‘Race to the Rescue’ which we brought to South Africa in 2018, this is a high-quality production that we are very proud of, featuring an outstanding cast, unique costumes that add dimension to each character on stage and lots of fun musical numbers.”
“Nickelodeon is one of the most globally recognized and widely distributed multimedia entertainment brands for kids and families across the continent and we are thrilled to partner with Glen 21 Entertainment in bringing Paw Patrol Live! back to Johannesburg in addition to three other regions across the country.
