The Jim Henson Company has teamed up with Red Light Management to bring the Pajanimals to the stage with a live musical production that will tour across the U.S.
Based on the “Pajanimals” television series, “Pajanimals Live: Pajama Playdate” will feature Squacky, Sweetpea Sue, Cowbella and Apollo performing the Pajanimals’ greatest hits, as well as new songs created exclusively for the live show.
Designed to introduce kids and families to their first theater experience, the show will include live music and interactive dance, with preschoolers and their parents encouraged to wear their own pajamas to the show to join in the fun.
The tour will launch March 7 with shows in 50 cities across the U.S. throughout May. Tickets for most cities go on sale Saturday.
Jim Henson has also teamed up with CID Entertainment to offer the Pajanimals Party Package, which includes reserved seating in the first 10 rows, a character meet-and-greet photo opportunity in an exclusive party room, a poster and a VIP laminate.
“‘Pajanimals’ is one of our most beloved shows, and families are invited to see these characters live on stage and share a special Pajanimals adventure,” said Lisa Henson, chief executive officer, The Jim Henson Company. “Our team always envisioned the property as a theatrical experience for families everywhere. We know this new live show will be something that will create a lasting memory.”
