Interactive Family Production Brings Enchantment and Excitement of Medieval Times to Life on Stage

Winnipeg, MB – November 4, 2014 – Koba Entertainment today announced its newest theatrical production Mike the Knight™ in the Great Scavenger Hunt will bring a thrilling mix of adventure, comedy, music, song, puppets, dance – plus a little bit of magic – to 45 Canadian cities beginning January 24. Based on the popular CG-animated series from HIT Entertainment and Nelvana, Mike the Knight in the Great Scavenger Hunt takes audiences on an interactive and eye-opening adventure for the whole family complete with an enchanting world of medieval castles, plucky trolls and flying dragons. Tickets will go on sale on November 7 and will be available through local box offices or at www.MikeTheKnightOnTour.com.

Mike the Knight in the Great Scavenger Hunt unfolds during the Glendragon Scavenger Hunt, where the young knight is determined to discover the most knightly way to tackle his chivalrous quest. Joined by his closest friends Sparkie and Squirt (a pair of quirky dragons), his valiant friend Trollee and his wizard-in-training sister Evie, the stakes are high as the cheerful yet bountiful Mike the Knight leads audiences on his bravest mission yet.

“I am excited to forage with Mike the Knight on this medieval scavenger hunt,” says award-winning choreographer and director, Patti Caplette. “And while chivalry and wizardry reign in Mike’s world of castles and kings, I want to convey that kids are kids, and Mike and his friends may have to be reminded to ‘Be a knight and do it right!’"

The live show is based on the animated series broadcast in more than 120 territories. In each episode of the animated series, preschoolers follow Mike the Knight on a mission to protect his kingdom and become a fully-fledged knight. Mike discovers the power of responsibility and doing tasks and activities the right way. Along the way, he reminds viewers of his motto: "Be a knight, do it right!"  The live show encourages independence, self-confidence and problem solving while inspiring kids to engage imaginations with dress-up and pretend play.                  

Koba Entertainment’s Mike the Knight in The Great Scavenger Hunt is among the producer’s long list of original stage shows, including Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games, Dora the Explorer: Search for the City Of Lost Toys and Max & Ruby in the Nutcracker Suite.
