An all-star cast of children’s entertainment comes to life at the Cleland Theatre.

Koba Entertainment announced a brand new live, interactive and family-friendly stage show: Koba’s The Great Big Show Live at the Cleland Theatre on Feb. 24, 2016.

It is the company’s first-ever live family theatrical tour that features lovable and endearing characters from four of the top-rated preschool shows on television today. Starring Franklin the Turtle, a Canadian  icon in children’s entertainment for more than 20 years, as well as The Backyardigans, Max & Ruby and Mike the Knight.

“My challenge is to design each quadrant of The Great Big Show as a different, unique adventure, whether it’s travelling the south seas with The Backyardigans, partying with Max & Ruby, guessing riddles with Franklin the Turtle or discovering chivalrous talents with Mike the Knight,” said Patti Caplette, Koba Entertainment’s award-winning, producing artistic director. “My passion is to bring families, young and old, to the theatre — the world’s greatest of all art forms.”

Adapting iconic characters from the animated screen to the live stage, is a professional challenge that continues to inspire and drive Koba’s entire creative production team.

“With more than 25 costume and character changes, this mega-production promises to keep the entire cast, crew and audiences on their toes,” said Caplette.

In Koba’s The Great Big Show Live, families embark on a musical adventure that encompasses Koba’s most popular stage productions. The imaginative Backyardigans travel from the frozen north to the sunny seas and home again just in time for a snack.

“Hilarious results arise when everybody’s favourite bunny siblings Max and Ruby encounter strange party guests,” said Caplette.

Fans will also have fun playing riddles and rhymes with Franklin the Turtle and his Woodland pals. They’ll also join the chivalrous Mike the Knight and his friends on adventures in the magical kingdom of Glendragon.
