Nickelodeon and Cirque du Soleil-owned VStar Entertainment have signed an expanded and exclusive five-year live theatrical partnership that will see both collaborating on multiple touring productions. They will kick things off with musical stage show Nick Jr. Live! Move to the Music, featuring characters from animated preschool series Bubble Guppies, PAW Patrol, Dora the Explorer (pictured), Shimmer and Shine, Blue’s Clues & You!, Blaze and the Monster Machines and Top Wing.
Tickets go on sale on March 15 for the US tour, and marks the first live musical show to bring characters from different Nick IPs together on the same stage.
It is not the first time VStar and Nick have worked together, the two first teamed up in 2016 with the co-production of PAW Patrol Live! Race to the Rescue. The show toured internationally in 2017 and has sold three million tickets worldwide. Following its success more shows were added to the live line-up including PAW Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure and Bubble Guppies Live! Ready to Rock.
