Boston, MA (October 16, 2018) – The Boch Center announced today that the heroic pups from the top-rated animated preschool series PAW Patrol, produced by Spin Master Entertainment, will bring PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” to the Boch Center Wang Theatre for six performances from March 29-31, 2019. Presented by Nickelodeon and VStar Entertainment Group, PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” is an action-packed, music-filled production, presented by Pedigree. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 26 at 10:00AM.
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. 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 is a wonderful introduction to 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.
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, October 26 at 10:00AM and will be available at the Boch Center Box Office, Bochcenter.org, by calling (800) 982-ARTS (2787) and via Ticketmaster.
