NEW YORK: Nickelodeon and VStar Entertainment Group are prepping the first-ever live stage show for the preschool series PAW Patrol.


PAW Patrol Live!: Race to the Rescue will feature characters from the Spin Master Entertainment-produced animated series. The international touring production is due to visit more than 90 cities across the U.S., Canada and Mexico, starting in October. The TV series follows a group of heroic rescue pups named ChaseMarshallRockyRubbleZumaSkye andEverest, who are led by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder. Together, they help the people of Adventure Bay. In the live show, it’s up to the PAW Patrol to rescue Adventure Bay’s Mayor Goodway and help her finish the race against Foggy Bottom’s Mayor Humdinger. Tour stops for the live show will be announced later this spring.

“PAW Patrol Live! will be an exciting extension of our top-rated, CG-animated TV series for preschoolers,” said Gerald Raines, the senior VP of global recreation at Nickelodeon. “Chase and the pack of the show’s beloved characters will take audiences along on their heroic adventures, challenging their imaginations and senses while teaching the importance of teamwork.”


“We’re delighted to partner with Nickelodeon to bring the PAW Patrol Live! experience to fans across the U.S., Canada and Mexico,” said Eric Grilly, the CEO of VStar Entertainment Group. “This is the first time we’ve had the honor to work with the Nickelodeon brand on a live tour. We look forward to the opportunity to bring our expertise to this show, and are excited to showcase the strength of our two entities in a production that’s certain to engage with audience members of all ages.”
