Since 2010, Life Like Touring’s hit production of Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer LIVE! Search for the City of Lost Toys, has been entertaining children all over the world.
Having discovered many exotic and exciting new places through the clever solving of riddles, Dora the Explorer will now take her adventures to the stage of Resorts World Genting in this captivating production.
Jesse Ooi, who watched the show with her two granddaughters, Zher Qing and Zhi Xin, said
“I brought my grandchildren to Resorts World Genting to watch the show because they love Dora the Explorer.
“They always make sure to catch the TV series at home and they were excitedly dancing along when Dora and her friends came onstage earlier.
“We all definitely had a good time and what’s important is that the kids came out happy.”
Debuting 24 November 2018, the elaborate stage show will run until 1 January 2019. The touring production arrives at the Genting International Showroom to focus a very vexing problem.
Dora has lost her teddy bear Osito and she needs help to find him. Sweeping through elaborate sets and rousing musical numbers, Dora must venture through a jungle of obstacles with nothing more than a map, Boots, Backpack, Diego and her other courageous friends to retrieve Osito.
It will not be easy, however, as the sneaky fox Swiper plans to foil her quest at all turns. Engaging the audience through song, dance and problem solving, there is no doubt that Dora will eventually succeed, so she can sing out her catchphrase at the end – We Did It!
Kevin Tann, Vice President of Promotions & Entertainment at Resorts World Genting, said,
“This is a great show that provides learning and entertainment in a fun way through crowd engagement that will see the kids interacting with the characters.
“Continuing our fine tradition of providing the greatest entertainment for the whole family, Dora the Explorer arrives for the first time in Malaysia to transport audiences into one of the intrepid adventurer’s thrilling adventures, brought to life through the magic of song and dance.”
Syahrizan Mansor, Vice President of Nickelodeon Brand Asia proudly shared on Dora as a character to look up to saying,
“At Nickelodeon, we put kids first in everything we do. We’re proud to say that Dora the Explorer LIVE! Search for the City of Lost Toys has already been seen by 2 million fans globally.
“Kids stand to learn a lot from Dora who is an inspiring character: she celebrates girl power, she’s bilingual and she instils important values on being a leader.”
Produced by Life Like Touring and Nickelodeon, and conceived by co-creator of the Dora the Explorer television show Chris Gifford, Dora the Explorer LIVE! Search for the City of Lost Toys first premiered in Melbourne, Australia in 2010 and has gone on to tour more than 15 countries since, entertaining over two million people across the world.
Arriving in Malaysia for the very first time at Resorts World Genting, the 14-strong cast and crew will act, sing and dance through 18 songs over the 90-minute production (with a 15-minute intermission).
Familiar songs from the television series will be intermingled with original songs written specifically for the live stage show.
Chris Gifford, who co-created Dora the Explorer with Valerie Walsh Valdes and Eric Weiner in 2000, said,
“Putting Dora on stage has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life and it has given me the opportunity of travelling to Australia, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.
“The television show runs for only twenty-two minutes so in the theatre, we have more time to play with the dynamics of the story and with the relationships between the characters.
“Dora can take the audience on the kind of adventure which the kids couldn’t experience for themselves. She’s a good kid and she’s also universal because ultimately these stories are about friendship and love.”
The stage production will run from 24 November 2018 to 1 January 2019 over 44 shows at the Genting International Showroom. Showtimes are 7.30pm Monday to Friday, 4pm and 7.30pm on Saturdays and 4pm on Sundays. There will be no shows on 26 November, 3 December, 17 December and 24 December.
