Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
NICKELODEON’S Dora the Explorer LIVE! Search for the City of Lost Toys will visit New Wimbledon Theatre (June 28 to June 30, 2013) as part of a UK tour.
This live musical adventure, which brings the popular children’s show to the stage, has now been seen by over two million people. It made its London debut in Summer 2012 at the West End’s Apollo Theatre following a hugely successful international tour.
The show is designed to teach children to explore, communicate, overcome obstacles, solve puzzles and discover a diverse and exciting world…all while having a lot of fun!
In Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer LIVE! Search for the City of Lost Toys, Dora has lost her teddy bear Osito, and the search is on to retrieve him.
With the help of the audience, Map, Backpack, Boots, Diego and their courageous friends, Dora uses her map-reading, counting, musical and language skills to successfully pass through the number pyramid and the mixed-up jungle to reach the City of Lost Toys. Along the way, she must contend with the sneaky fox Swiper…
Dora the Explorer, which airs every day on Nick Jr. at 8.30am, 11am and 4.30pm, with brand new episodes in March and June, sees Dora taking part in adventures in her imaginative, tropical world filled with jungles, beaches and rainforests.
Dora explores her world just as children do every day and the award-winning show, which currently reaches more pre-schoolers than any other show on television (12.4 million), is designed to actively engage its audience using a variety of learning techniques.
The tour, which commences in Wycombe on March 26, 2013, will also visit Norwich, Edinburgh, Inverness, Aberdeen, York, Billingham, Hull, Bournemouth, Guildford, St Albans, Llandudno, Belfast, Basingstoke, Leicester, Cardiff, Tunbridge Wells, Wimbledon, Swindon, Birmingham, Liverpool, Bristol, Milton Keynes and Bromley.
