Families and kids are invited to join Dora and her pals Boots and Diego when the beloved Nickelodeon characters make the transition from the screen to the stage at the Grand Arena at GrandWest from July 15 to 17.
They will embark on a voyage of discovery to Treasure Island in search of the ultimate pirate party.
The audience will be able to help them navigate over the Dancing Mountain and through the Silly Singing Bridge in pursuit of the Pirate Piggies. Along the way, ‘Dora the Explorer’ fans will use their map-reading, counting, musical and language skills to successfully help Dora reach Treasure Island and avoid that pesky fox, Swiper.
