19It’s Pirate Day in Adventure Bay. Join Ryder, Chase, Marshall and Skye at the Crown Theater on July 5 and 6 for Paw Patrol Live. It’s an “all paws on deck” situation.

The Sandhills’ littlest adventurers can put their hero skills to the test and help the gang rescue Cap’n Turbot and uncover buried treasure on Adventure Bay with the help of a mysterious map. Tracker, a new puppy addition to the usual lineup, will assist as Mayor Humdinger tries to thwart the canine crusaders.

The show, now seen by over 4 million people since its debut six years ago, is an interactive experience that engages kids and parents alike.

“It’s geared for ages 2 to 6, but I like to say 2 to 200,” said Jeff Dietzel, spokesperson for the show. “Kids of any age can come and have a great time with their family.”
Since its debut in 2013, Paw Patrol has been a juggernaut in the kid’s entertainment area. The franchise, spawning several direct-to-video adventures, merchandise and a movie in 2021, shows no sign of slowing down.

“Kids love puppies,” Dietzel explained the continued popularity of the show and its characters. “They’re so unique and individual. Each character has their own personality and fears; they’re unique, like all kids are unique. And sure, they’re small, but they can be heroes too.”

While most kids are more than familiar with Adventure Bay’s four-legged heroes, a knowledge of the show and its characters isn’t necessary to fully enjoy the show.
The broadway-style show certainly aims to deliver in the entertainment department, inviting audience members not only an opportunity to watch their favorite characters up on stage but to be a part of the show themselves.

“There’s lots of singing and dancing,” Dietzel said of the show. “It’s a great introduction to live theater. It’s hard to sit there and be quiet. We encourage the kids to get up and sing and dance with us. Everyone in attendance gets a pIrate flag to wave — it’s a highly interactive experience.”
Children are definitely the target audience, but Dietzel assured Up & Coming Weekly that the show is just as fun for parents as it is for kids.

“It’s a great time for the whole family; parents have a great time seeing their kids have fun. It’s like a mini-rock concert,” he joked.
General admission tickets are $18, with a limited number of VIP (Very Important Pup) packages also available. VIP tickets are $110 and include prime seating, an after-show photo-op with the characters and a souvenir bag to take home.

“I really hope that kids have a great time,” Dietzel said. “My favorite thing is to hear that ‘this was the best day ever,’” It’s awesome to hear; it makes us feel like we’ve done a great job.”
Showtimes are Tuesday, July 5, and Wednesday, July 6, starting at 6 p.m.
The Crown Theater is located at 1960 Coliseum Dr. in Fayetteville.
