      Parents, rejoice! Popular kids franchise Paw Patrol—an animated kids series that follows the adventures of a team of heroic pups—is jumping off screen and onto the stage this spring.

      In a live-action tour, the crew (Chase, Rocky, Zuma, Skye, Rubble, Everest, and Marshall, in case you don’t have a kid between the ages of two and 10 and are unfamiliar) will be hitting Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre stage to act out a new adventure called Heroes Unite.

      This time, the doggie septet, along with their human leader, Ryder, goes on a rescue mission to save one of their pals from a mischievous villain.

      The Nickelodeon show debuted more than a decade ago, and has since continued to enthrall its screen-based audience—evidenced by its 10 seasons and two feature movies—through its noble rescue mission and daring adventure stories.

      This time, the band of dogs come to life on stage through costume design, video projection, and—of course—familiar musical numbers that will have the crowd singing along (with mouthfuls of popcorn, we’re sure).

      Four performances take place over two days, with shows happening during the day.

      Pre-sale tickets are now available.
