PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” is headed to the Durham Performing Arts Center this spring.
Shows, based on the popular hit preschool series PAW Patrol, which airs on Nickelodeon, will stop at DPAC on May 20 and 21, 2017.
Here's a description: "PAW Patrol Live! brings everybody’s favorite 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, Skye and Everest when they visit Durham."
The show includes two acts and an intermission. It uses Bunraku puppetry, a costuming approach that brings the PAW Patrol characters to life on stage with their vehicles and packs, according to a press release.
“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, in that press release.
Tickets, which start at $21, are on sale now. (Lap tickets are available for children under the age of 1). Showtimes are 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., May 20 and May 21. DPAC's website has the details.
