Toronto, ON – January 22, 2015 – Koba Entertainment and Nickelodeon today announced its celebrated theatrical production Dora the Explorer Live! Search for the City of Lost Toys will return to Canada for a national tour. A global phenomenon seen by more than four million parents and children worldwide in 30 countries, Dora’s live musical adventure incorporates educational and interactive components that have made Nickelodeon’s 16-time Emmy nominated series Dora the Explorer a hit preschool program in Canada. Tickets go on-sale Friday, January 30 and are available through www.DoraLiveCanada.com

Kicking off April in Ontario, Dora the Explorer Live! Search for the City of Lost Toys sends Dora on her most important mission yet: to find her lost teddy bear. With help from the live audience and her courageous amigos, Dora uses her map-reading, counting, musical and language skills to successfully navigate the number pyramid and the mixed-up jungle to reach The City of Lost Toys. During the 70-minute live show featuring colorful costumes and stunning sets, Dora and her cousin Diego, Boots, Map, Backpack, Tico, Isa, Benny -- even that pesky fox Swiper -- invite audiences to think, sing and play along while helping to find Dora’s teddy bear.

"Using our hallmark, innovative multimedia technology and an all-star creative team, we created a truly unique live musical adventure that is fun for the whole family,” says Koba Entertainment’s award-winning creative director, Patti Caplette. “We are thrilled to feature the iconic young Dora to entertain and share the positive and empowering messages for which she is known to families across Canada.”

Dora the Explorer Live! Search for the City of Lost Toys is among Koba Entertainment’s long list of stage show properties including Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games, The Backyardigans: Quest for the Extraordinary Alien and Max & Ruby in the Nutcracker Suite.
