Cool Characters on Tour

If you happen to live in Canada, know that Caillou is making an appearance near you! Here is the link for tour dates, of which there are only two. Let’s hope that they decide to come to the U.S. as well! We will definitely keep you posted if that’s the case :)

 Thankfully, there are some other great shows touring in the United States featuring your favorite characters:

Angelina Ballerina: The Musical is showing at Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street, New York, NY, between Park and Madison Avenues, from Sun. May 6th, 2012 – Sun. May 20th, 2012.

Pinkalicious

Pinkalicious: The Musical is playing at the MMAC in New York through July 1st, 2012 and in Chicago through August 5. Canadians won’t miss out, either, with the show running in Toronto through June 24.

If you go to see Pinkalicious, be prepared to dress up in your finest pink attire. In the show, Pinkalicious Pinkerton tries to survive on pink cupcakes alone, all vegetables aside! Throughout the show, Pinkalicious learns the value of eating healthy, listening to her mom and dad, and living in moderation. The show includes live music, and the tickets are reasonably priced.

Tickets for Angelina and Pinkalicious are available through https://iseats.net/

Have you seen the show? If so, what did you think?
