The stage show PAW Patrol Live! will be making its way into homes across America with PAW Patrol Live! At Home, an interactive streaming event taking place on Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25, on Nickelodeon. Described as a "virtual extravaganza" in a press release, the event will include: a 45-minute interactive stage show that puts kids at the center of the action; an opportunity to watch the show in a shared viewing room with friends and family; and an immersive pre-show area with games, videos, printable activities and more. PAW Patrol Live! At Home will be presented in both English and Spanish, originally presented on stage as PAW Patrol Live! Race to the Rescue by VStar Entertainment.
"As we look forward to a return to normalcy and welcoming families back to our live events, we continue to invest in innovative ways to grow our Nickelodeon Experiences business during these unprecedented times," said Amy Hyland, Executive Vice President, Nickelodeon Strategy, Business Development and Operations in a statement. "With PAW Patrol Live! At Home we've produced a one-of-a-kind co-viewing event that allows us to recreate the communal theater experience and give families a way to connect with not only fan favorite Nick characters, but their loved ones as well. This virtual interactive adventure will be an exciting extension of the top-rated animated TV series, challenging audiences imaginations and senses, while teaching the importance of teamwork."
