Nickelodeon and VStar Entertainment Group, part of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group, announced the U.S. debut of the live theatrical production Nick Jr. Live! Move to the Music.
The new musical will feature, for the first time on one stage, characters from multiple hit Nickelodeon preschool animated series, including Bubble Guppies, PAW Patrol (produced by Spin Master Entertainment), Dora the Explorer, Shimmer and Shine, Blue’s Clues & You!, Blaze and the Monster Machines, and Top Wing.
Exclusive ticket pre-sale opportunities will be available to fan club subscribers beginning Wednesday, March 6, and tickets are available to the general public beginning Friday, March 15.
Nick Jr. Live! Move to the Music marks the first of several productions to debut as part of an exclusive live theatrical touring partnership between Nickelodeon and VStar Entertainment Group. The partnership includes collaboration on several Nickelodeon intellectual properties to deliver new theatrical touring productions over the course of the exclusive five-year deal. The relationship between the family entertainment brands kicked off in 2016 with the co-production of PAW Patrol Live! Race to the Rescue, the first live stage show based on Nickelodeon’s top-rated preschool series. Since then, the two have added PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure and Bubble Guppies Live! Ready to Rock to the list of production collaborations. Since the debut of the original show, three million PAW Patrol Live! tickets have been sold worldwide.
Nick Jr. Live! Move to the Music follows Dora and her PAW co-hosts, Marshall and Rubble, as they invite their Nick Jr. friends to come together for a music-filled production. Bubble Guppies‘ Molly and Gil, Rod and Penny from Top Wing, Shimmer and Shine, and even Blue from the new Blue’s Clues &You! are throwing a Nick Jr. celebration. The show will transport audiences to familiar Nick Jr. locations, including Bubbletucky and Zahramay Falls, and includes two acts, along with an intermission. The musical adventure will feature live appearances, special on-screen guests, and audience participation to engage the whole family.
