Paw Patrol LIVE!

More Info

No job too big, no pup too small! Nickelodeon and VStar Entertainment Group present PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue,” an action-packed, music-filled production, presented by Pedigree. The heroic pups from the top-rated animated preschool series PAW Patrol, produced by Spin Master Entertainment, will visit the Cox Convention Center Arena August 10-12, 2018! Tickets for all five performances are on sale now and can be purchased at www.ticketmaster.com or by phone at 800-745-3000.

It's the day of the Great Adventure Bay Race between Adventure Bay’s Mayor Goodway and Foggy Bottom’s Mayor Humdinger, but Mayor Goodway is nowhere to be found. PAW Patrol to the rescue! Ryder summons Marshall, Chase, Skye, Rubble, Rocky, Zuma and Everest to rescue Mayor Goodway and to run the race in her place. Using their unique skills and teamwork, the pups show that “no job is too big, no pup is too small,” and share lessons for all ages about citizenship, social skills and problem-solving as they make several heroic rescues on their race to the finish line.

The show includes two acts and an intermission, and engages audiences with Bunraku puppetry, an innovative costuming approach that brings the PAW Patrol characters to life on stage with their vehicles and pup packs. The performance features up-tempo music and a cleverly written script that is a wonderful introdsuction to live theater for kids. Classic theatrical scenery, along with a high-tech video wall, visually transports families to an authentic PAW Patrol environment, including locations from the TV series, like Adventure Bay, The Lookout, Seal Island, Farmer Yumi's farm and Jake's Mountain. Special interactive video allows the audience to participate via interviews, solve clues with the Pups, follow Mayor Goodway and much more.

Producers are doubling down on their core assets in the historic Midcontinent's resource-rich plays. Many consider the region second only to the prolific Permian Basin when it comes to play economics and profitability.

DUG Midcontinent 2018 is your chance to connect with the key players operating in Southwest Kansas, the Texas Panhandle, Northwest Arkansas and throughout Oklahoma. Find out what steps they are taking to weather the storm. With executive-level speakers, exhibitors showcasing solutions, and hours of exclusive networking opportunities – this is the ONE event that brings the entire region together. You'll walk away with new insights, proven best practices, and hundreds of valuable connections.
