Daniel Tiger is heading to even more neighborhoods in 2020 with the upcoming Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Live! Neighbor Day tour. Launching in January, the live show will visit more than 50 cities across the US.
The Neighbor Day live show will see Daniel Tiger travel to the Neighborhood of Make-Believe with his family and friends, including O the Owl, Katerina Kittycat and Prince Wednesday. The preschool-focused show will feature new songs as well as fan-favorite songs from the series, including “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?”
This new tour will pick up shortly after the Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Live: King for a Day tour wraps up, after it traveled to more than 50 communities this year. The first Daniel Tiger-inspired stage show launched in 2016, and the brand’s live experiences have gone on to produce more than US$12.8 million in ticket sales across the US and Canada. The preschool series Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood airs daily on PBS KIDS and boasts four seasons.
Many kidcos have seen similar success at center stage, with companies like Mattel, Hasbro, Warner Bros. and ZAG all announcing kid-focused live shows. Fred Rogers Productions is doubling down on the trend, teaming up with the Bay Area Children’s Theater to launch an interactive live show based on its PBS KIDS series Peg + Cat.
