Tickets are now on sale for the Super WHY Live: You’ve Got the Power! first-ever live show based on the top-rated PBS KIDS TV series from Out of the Blue Enterprises. Preschoolers have “the power” to experience Super WHY as never before with Super WHY Live: You’ve Got the Power!
Super WHY Live kicks off in Monroe, Louisiana, and will visit nine cities throughout July, “setting the stage” for additional stops from coast-to-coast this fall. They will be here in Atlanta on Friday, July 27th! Fans can visit www.superwhylive.com for more information and to purchase tickets and VIP “Meet & Greet” packages.
Super WHY Live adds a whole new exhilarating dimension to Super WHY and its power to entertain and inspire young children,” said Samantha Freeman Alpert, Co-Creator and Executive Producer of the series and Co-Founder of Out of the Blue Enterprises. “We’re so excited to extend the beloved series from the screen to the stage with this full-scale live production for families to enjoy together.
Super WHY Live vibrantly brings to life Super Why, Alpha Pig, Wonder Red, Princess Presto and their puppy pal Woofster, who each take children on larger-than-life, imagination-stimulating adventures. With help from the audience, the characters embark on magical, out-of-this-world journeys to explore what they’ve always wanted to be – from a ship’s captain to a rock star and more! While singing, dancing and interacting with the characters on stage along the way, pint-sized fans (and parents, alike!) discover who really has the power to make dreams come true!
How to make the Live Tour experience “super” for the whole family!
To help ensure Super WHY Live will be an adventure you’ll both treasure, here are some tips from Out of the Blue’s Angela C. Santomero, mom of two and creator of Super WHY and Blue’s Clues, on how to make it a “super” special time for the whole family:
Set The Stage – Talk to your child in the weeks and days leading up to the event. If they haven’t been to a theater before, describe the stage and seating, the lights and sounds, the characters and their performances, the acting, dancing and singing. Discuss how their favorite characters from TV will “come to life” on stage. Knowing what to expect is a key to making the live show experience exciting and magical.
Know the Score – Listen to the music from Super WHY Live: You’ve Got the Power! together, so children will already be familiar with it before the show – while moms and dads get a special kick out of knowing that the show features new music from Jack Antonoff of the chart-topping indie band “fun.”!
Dress Rehearsal – Have your kids come dressed up as their favorite Super Reader! It’s a great way to get them into the spirit of Super WHY and to make them feel like they’re a part of the show!
You’ve Got the Power! – Let your kids know this high-flying new show is all about having fun! Like the popular Super WHY TV series, Super WHY Live: You’ve Got the Power! encourages its young audience to shout-out their responses to the characters and dance and sing along with all the engaging action. No need for “inside voices” during this interactive production; part of the fun is learning as they play along!
Super Readers! – Turn the experience into a super reading expedition! Show children the letters and numbers on their tickets before arriving and have them help identify the section, aisle and seat where you’ll be sitting. Play an “I Spy” spelling game until the show begins with familiar elements all around the theater (lights, curtains, seats, etc.).
Curtain Call – Arrive early so preschoolers can take a “mini tour” of the venue – and don’t forget to visit the potty before the opening curtain! Snacks and naps ahead of time also are a “super” help for making a happy audience!
