PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure! Will Tour More Than 100 U.S. Cities in 2019

Arlington, VA, October 10, 2018 - PBS KIDS, the number one educational media brand for children, today announced the first-ever PBS KIDS Live! touring stage show, PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure, presented by Zappos Adaptive. The live-action theatrical experience designed to support science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM)- based learning, offers families a live-action musical along with a pre-show lobby experience, including augmented reality (AR) games, hands-on activities and meet and greets with favorite PBS KIDS characters.

PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure follows the story of three kids crossing their backyard to attend a friend's birthday party. It becomes an unexpected adventure when the group gets shrunk to the size of grasshoppers. Will they solve all the really big, tiny challenges and grow full-size in time for the birthday fun? Audiences will find out in PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure. The U.S. tour kicks off on January 12 in Westbury, New York and will head to more than 100 cities, including Atlanta, Indianapolis and Detroit. Presale tickets are on sale now, with tickets becoming available to the general public on Saturday, October 20. For more information and a complete list of tour dates, visit www.pbskidslivetour.com.

We're always seeking ways to engage children through new venues for learning and are thrilled to announce a live tour performance that will do just that, said Dawn Ciccone, Vice President, Brand Licensing, PBS. The PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure will offer a new way to extend PBS KIDS' educational goals, creating a live multimedia experience that takes children and their families on an exciting journey together.

As the presenting sponsor of the PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure, Zappos Adaptive, an inclusive shopping experience on Zappos.com, will be providing sensory-friendly kits to enhance the experience for audience members. As the sole retail partner, Zappos will be hosting official merchandise through an online retail destination, including an assortment of new adaptive apparel.

PBS KIDS has teamed up with Biba, the pioneer of the smart playground movement, to build an augmented reality app that transforms the theatre lobby into an immersive PBS KIDS world, giving families the opportunity to play and explore together. With the app, parents take the helm and guide their children through an interactive social scavenger hunt in search of the key to a virtual bug garden. The experience combines imagination, collaboration and technology to promote healthy play that can be extended to any local playground after the show.

PBS KIDS is collaborating with Gershwin Entertainment Corporation to produce the PBS KIDS Live! Really BIG tiny Adventure. Gershwin Entertainment has developed and produced successful theatrical productions, concerts and tours for numerous iconic brands. Current North American tours include A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Million Dollar Quartet. The stage show is written and directed by Marshall Pailet.
