See the Paw Patrol ‘Race to the Rescue’
Kids will surely have a howling good time when the heroic pups from the popular animated preschool series PAW Patrol roll into town for five shows this weekend at the PPL Center in Allentown.
If you have PAW Patrol fans in your house, you know that each episode features Ryder, who leads a team of six rescue puppies — Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Rocky, Zuma and Skye — as they save their town of Adventure Bay from everyday emergencies.
The stage show, PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue,” presented by Nickelodeon and VStar Entertainment Group and produced by Spin Master Entertainment, builds on that premise. It’s the day of the
Great Adventure Bay Race between Adventure Bay’s Mayor Goodway and Foggy Bottom’s Mayor Humdinger, but Mayor Goodway is nowhere to be found. So it’s PAW Patrol to the rescue! Ryder summons Marshall, Chase, Skye, Rubble, Rocky, Zuma and Everest to rescue Mayor Goodway and to run the race in her place. Using their unique skills and teamwork, the pups show that “no job is too big, no pup is too small,” and share lessons for all ages about citizenship, social skills and problem-solving as they make several heroic rescues on their race to the finish line.
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 pup packs. The performance features up-tempo music and a cleverly written script that makes this a great opportunity for parents to introduce live theater 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.
PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” will hit the stage at 10 a.m., 2 and 6 p.m. Saturday, and 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., Sunday at PPL Center, 701 Hamilton St., Allentown.
