The Backyardigans are coming to Moncton, New Brunswick on Thursday, March 27th 2014 for two shows. One show at 3:30 pm and the other at 6:30 pm. My kids have seen other Koba Productions at the Capitol Theatre and they will be extremely happy to find out they are going to this one as well.
I have checked the ticket sales on the Capitol Theatre website and I must say if you are interested in getting tickets for your kids to this show, do it soon. To give you an idea the afternoon show appears to be approx. 50% sold out while the 630 show appears to be pushing very close to being 75% sold with the entire bottom level of the theatre only having 18 seats available when I looked. This does not give you long to pick up seats. The theatre only holds 782 people for each show so basically there appears to be only room for about 500 to 600 people between the two shows.
One major bonus is there are almost no bad seats in the Capitol theater (the website lists 4 seats as having a partially obstructed view, GG1,2, 28,29) so no matter where you sit you will have a great view of the stage.
THE BACKYARDIGANS: SEA DEEP IN ADVENTURE
Who explores a coral reef, discovers a seaweed farm, and joins the jellyfish ballet – all before snack time?
The Backyardigans! Pablo, Tyrone, Tasha, Uniqua and Austin are back on stage, singing and dancing and ready to plunge sea deep into adventure.
Dive into the action as these five friends explore clues, discover underwater magic, and match wits with an egocentric, seaweed farming octopus and a pair of playful dolphins. With a splashy range of song-and dance styles to wade along to – including psychedelic soul, Bollywood, bossa nova, and more – our heroes save the day.
With non-stop excitement and surprises, this watery tale will mesmerize, entertain and delight audiences of all ages!
The theatrical production is based on the top-rated preschool television program The Backyardigans, airing on Treehouse TV in Canada and Nick Jr. in the US.
