I've always loved The Backyardigans. It is such a sweet and fun show, highlighting the wonders of children's imagination and the adventures that can be found in your own back yard. I think it reminds me of my own childhood, when we left the house after breakfast and only came back when we were hungry again. (Notice how every episode ends with a snack?)
This winter, Koba Entertainment is bringing The Backyardigans live to a stage near you with a cross-Canada tour. There are stops from BC to Newfoundland, and you can check out http://www.thebackyardigansontour.com/ to see if our colourful friends are heading to your area.
THE BACKYARDIGANS: SEA DEEP IN ADVENTURE -SynopsisHere's sneak peek. It looks gorgeous!
Who explores a coral reef, discovers a seaweed farm, and joins the jellyfish ballet – all before snack time? The Backyardigans! Pablo, Tyrone, Tasha, Uniqua and Austin are back on stage, singing and dancing and ready to plunge sea deep into adventure.
Dive into the action as these five friends explore clues, discover underwater magic, and match wits with an egocentric, seaweed farming octopus and a pair of playful dolphins. With a splashy range of song-and- dance styles to wade along to – including psychedelic soul, Bollywood, bossa nova, and more – our heroes save the day.
With non-stop excitement and surprises, this watery tale will mesmerize, entertain and delight audiences of all ages!
