May 2008: Arthur the Aardvark Is Coming to Artpark!

Stage Version of Emmy-Winning Children’s Series Hits Artpark May 14! (Lewiston, NY) Arthur LIVE!, the delightful, critically-acclaimed stage version of Marc Brown’s six-time Emmy Award-winning PBS series, is hitting the Artpark stage for a pair of musical adventures (10:30am and 7pm) on Wednesday, May 14, 2008. Tickets to join Arthur, Buster, D.W. and the entire gang from Elwood City are only $7 (or $6 before January 15) for the field-trip friendly morning show, while entrance to the evening family performance is $14-$19 for adults and $9-$14 for children 12 and under. Arthur LIVE! is suitable for children in grades K-6. A performance-related study guide is available for educators looking to complete this truly unique enlightening and entertaining experience.

Featuring a dozen original songs -- including ”Good and Ready,” “The Loose Tooth Wiggle” and "T-Rex Rocks," Arthur LIVE! keeps the audience engaged and tapping their toes. The show includes our favorite cast of characters: the lovable, intrepid Arthur, his feisty sister D.W., his good buddies Buster and Brain, his nemesis Francine – and new stars including the warm, wise and wacky Tooth Fairy. An innovative, page-turning pop-up storybook set and special-effects move the story through Elwood City, Arthur’s House, Mr. Ratburn’s Classroom, the Dentist Office and the Dinosaur Museum.

Arthur LIVE! stresses the values of teamwork, learning and the joys of being a kid. In this musical adventure, D.W. is jealous when her big brother Arthur loses a tooth and gets a visit from the Tooth Fairy. Arthur explains that the Tooth Fairy comes only when you lose a tooth and put it under your pillow at night, so D.W. dreams up some hilarious (but unsuccessful) plans to trick the Tooth Fairy into coming. Finally, Arthur decides to reward D.W.'s efforts by helping the Tooth Fairy.

For more than 30 years, children have enjoyed reading Arthur Adventure™, the award-winning book series by Marc Brown that has sold more than 60 million books worldwide. PBS TV began airing the Arthur television series just over a decade ago, and it continues to be one of the top children’s shows, as merited by winning a Peabody and five Emmy Awards. Now children and their families can enjoy Arthur LIVE! as everyone’s favorite aardvark comes to life to celebrate over three decades of educating and entertaining young children.

Arthur and his friends from Elwood city are some of the most trusted and recognizable children's characters ever. Many companies and organizations have chosen Arthur and his friends for promotions that capitalize on Arthur's broad appeal with kids and respect with parents. Promotional Partners include Juicy Juice, Daimler-Chrysler, Marriott Resorts and Barnes & Noble.
