Children’s favourites Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants and Nick Jr’s Dora the Explorer will be performing live in their own shows at the DStv Kids Xtravaganza, which takes place at Vodacom World in Midrand from 12 to 15 December.
It’s festive season holiday entertainment at its best for the entire family. The two popular characters from Nickelodeon (DStv Channel 305) and Nick Jr. (DStv Channel 307) will be keeping youngsters entertained during the holiday break with three live hour-long stage shows every day followed by a 90-minute session in the massive Fun Zone with a host of activities including face painting and gaming stations. There will also be fantastic SpongeBob and Dora the Explorer products to buy.
Both SpongeBob and Dora are global TV phenomenons – regularly ranking among the top children’s programmes around the world. For the past six years in South Africa, SpongeBob has been named the Coolest Cartoon Character in the Generation Next Survey and lists Johnny Depp, Bruce Willis, Sigourney Weaver, and David and Victoria Beckham among his many celebrity fans. During the DStv Kids Xtravaganza live shows, both cartoon stars will perform exclusive sing-alongs for their fans.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with DStv on this wonderful event, bringing kids and families together with Nick Jr. favourite Dora the Explorer and Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants. Dora and SpongeBob are loved by families all over the world and it gives us great pleasure to bring them to life with DStv Kids Xtravaganza,” says Asania Parsadh, Head: Nickelodeon Africa.
SpongeBob Squarepants lives in a pineapple with his pet snail Gary. He is an incurably optimistic and well-intentioned sponge. He always finds himself in hot water without really trying, and he’s not usually alone, as wherever SpongeBob goes, his best friend Patrick Starfish is never far behind. SpongeBob performs in a show which is fully interactive and will incorporate various media elements.
Dora the Explorer is an adventurous five-year-old Latina heroine who actively involves pre-schoolers to help her on her play-along adventures. She is joined by her fearless and determined cousin Diego and a monkey, her best friend called Boots. Dora, Diego, Boots and host Sam will perform in the live shows which consist of fun nursery rhymes and popular songs with a Spanish twist.
The DStv Kids Xtravaganza takes place from Friday, December 12, to Monday, December 15. Show times are at 09h30; 12h30 and 15h30. Tickets are available at Computicket at R135 a person and includes entrance to the live shows (40 min Dora the Explorer show and 20 min SpongeBob SquarePants show) as well as 90 minutes access in the Fun Zone.
