The year was 1979, it was my ninth birthday and I was obsessed with The Smurfs. My hair was tied back tight in a French braid, my dress was pressed and I had my Smurf stuffed animal under my arm. I may not remember what I had for lunch yesterday but I have fond memories of that night.
The Kids are in love with Dora, Toopy and Binoo, Caillou, The Backyardigans, Franklin, Max and Ruby and anything that plays on Treehouse. In case you’re taking notes, no, we don’t have a TV, however, they can recite episodes from four months ago that they saw at Nanna’s. They’re typical four year olds.
So, when I heard that Koba Entertainment was coming to the Ottawa Centrepointe Theatre in Ottawa, I knew that it was time. Time to share the joy that I experienced as a child with The Kids.
Produced by Koba Entertainment, The Backyardigans: Sea Deep in Adventure is among the company’s roster of other memorable theatrical productions, including Dora the Explorer Live! Search for the City of Lost Toys and Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon.
Who explores a coral reef, plays in an octopus’s garden, 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 all-too-tidy octopus and a pair of playful (but messy!) 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.
