UK: New “In the Night Garden“ Live Theatre Show Announced for Great Britain Tour
DHX Brands, the brand management and consumer products arm of Canada’s DHX Media production firm, and London-based Minor Entertainment company, which is specialized in the creation of family theatre events, have announced their partnership to premiere a new live theatre show based on the popular “In the Night Garden” series aimed at preschool kids. Before, the series broadcasted on British CBeebies TV channel (part of BBC Group) amongst others could be seen as a live show touring in its own portable inflatable auditorium.
A special highlight of the new stage production will be a specially designed, 2.5 metre long “orbit” dubbed “Night Garden Pinky Ponk Air Orb”, which is set to hover above the spectators’ heads during the shows. The flying object will be provided by Germany’s Airstage company. “In the Night Garden’s much-loved live show has been a huge hit with families over the years and we’re delighted to continue our partnership with Minor Entertainment for this thrilling new version for theatres. With such exciting innovations as the Pinky Ponk Air Orb, it will continue to be a must-see first theatre experience for young children,” says Laura Brennan, Brand Manager at DHX Brands.
The final show of the tour will be staged in Cardiff/Wales on October 28th this year. (eap)
