Locations and dates will be announced in May 2018 with the first stops in Canada beginning fall 2018.
“As we continue to build on the success and momentum of Ranger Rob we couldn’t be more excited to work with Round Room to deliver the sense of exploration and wonder of the series to the stage,” said Pam Westman, Head, Nelvana Enterprises. “Our young fans continually look for ways to experience their favourite characters beyond the television screen, and we’re eager to bring the excitement of Big Sky Park to life through this new on-stage adventure.”
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Nelvana to bring a live version of Ranger Rob to the stage,” said Stephen Shaw, Founder and CEO, Round Room Presents. “Ranger Rob and the spirited themes of exploration, curiosity, and discovery lend themselves perfectly to a live experience and we can’t wait to bring these stories to life in a new way for kids everywhere.”
Ranger Rob follows the adventures of 10-year-old Rob and his friends Stomper, a talking Yeti, Chipper, a robotic car, fun-loving pal Dakota and others, around Big Sky Park, the coolest natural outdoor adventure park. Whether they are flying or driving in Chipper, zip-lining through trees or snowboarding through frosty fields, they love discovering and exploring all that the park has to offer. Each episode of the series takes viewers on a new adventure, cultivating the spirit of exploration and curiosity, and inspiring kids to get outside to play and discover.
Round Room joins a growing list of licensees and partners with Ranger Rob including Sprout, the preschool destination within NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment’s Universal Kids network which broadcasts the series in the U.S., and the master toy partner, Imports Dragon.
