Calling all Moblees! The Moblees are on the move and they’re coming to Waterloo Region. The popular CBC Kids’ program will debut the world premiere of its new stage show The Moblees Live! On A Wishin’ Mission at the St. Jacobs Country Playhouse for eight performances only from April 20 to April 23.
“Kids love The Moblees, and we are very excited to offer audiences in Waterloo Region the opportunity to be the first to see this brand new show live on stage,” says Alex Mustakas, Artistic Director of Drayton Entertainment.
The Moblees Live! On A Wishin’ Mission is set on a special day in Terra Mova, and everyone is invited. Bailey Butterfly, Dasha Dog, Gisbert Grasshopper and Sylvio Snake have planned a catter‐cool surprise dance party for Carlin Caterpillar’s birthday but—oh noodles!—the Wishing Star has gone missing! Carlin canʹt blow out his candles until everyone uses their amazing Moblee moves to rescue the star and send it back to the sky. So get ready to move, mighty Moblees, because audiences are invited to gallop, giggle, zig‐zag twist, and twirl through Terra Mova on this brand new, tail waggity wishinʹ mission, live on stage!
ʺBringing the very first original Moblees musical to the stage with Drayton Entertainment is my wish come true.” says Seth A. Goldstein, Producer of The Moblees. ʺThis live show is where Moblees fans and their families can finally get up close and move with their friends from TV as they share a fantastic adventure together.ʺ
David Connolly will direct and choreograph the production, which features stars from the TV series, Michelle Bouey as Dasha Dog, Scott Farley as Carlin Caterpillar, Chris George as Gisbert Grasshopper, Matthew Nethersole as Sylvio Snake, and introduces Danielle Wade as Bailey Butterfly.
