Paw Patrol Live! ‘Race to the Rescue’ Adds Newcastle Show to the UK Tour


Jun 10, 2017

PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” is thrilled to announce the addition of Newcastle to its national tour which launches in Manchester and takes in 11 major cities across the UK and Ireland.

Based on Spin Master Entertainment’s phenomenally popular property, which airs on Nick Jr., PAW Patrol Live! brings everybody’s favourite pups to the stage for an action-packed, high-energy, musical adventure.

PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” will now be appearing at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle on Saturday 19th August with performances at 10.30am, 1.30pm and 4.30pm.

“The UK’s response to PAW Patrol Live has been truly extraordinary. We knew this wonderful live show would be popular, but we’ve genuinely been taken by surprise by the overwhelming demand.  We’re thrilled to be bringing this spectacular live event to fans in Newcastle and the North East of England”, said Anton Berezin, Managing Director, TEG Life Like Touring.

PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” shows that “No job is too big, no pup is too small!” and shares lessons for all ages about community, social skills and problem solving as the characters each use their unique skills and teamwork. When Mayor Goodway goes missing during the day of the Great Adventure Bay Race, the pups come to the rescue. Families can join Ryder, Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Rubble, Zuma, Skye and Everest for the show’s first tour in UK and Ireland.

Running at 80 minutes, PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” includes two acts and an intermission. The show is set to engage 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 brand new story, which serves as a good introduction to live theatre 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, and follow Mayor Goodway and much more.

Using Bunraku, puppetry elements are built into costumes worn by performers to create life-size pups that wag their tails, blink their eyes, move their mouths and engage the audience throughout their adventure. The costume design brings a fun, realistic parallel between the animated series and the live show.
