Popular children’s show adds second date

The Backyardigans added another show to their performance at the Port Theatre

Popular children’s show The Backyardigans added a second date to their performance at the Port Theatre.

Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens sold so fast that a second show was added for Sept. 7 with tickets currently on sale.

Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens is a theatrical production that will lead families on a heroic quest through the whimsical escapades of The Backyardigans, based on the hugely popular television series.

The Backyardigans gang – Pablo the penguin, Tyrone the moose, Uniqua the purple-spotted creature, Tasha the hippo, and Austin the kangaroo – are five high-spirited preschool friends whose zany imaginations are whisking them on yet another epic adventure.

Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens takes the audience on a non-stop musical expedition as The Backyardigans become daring detectives, Cookie Security Guards and Space Ace Reporters who travel in hot pursuit of a mysterious space ship and its missing passengers – the cookie-crumbing Aliens.

Tickets $26.50 through the Port Theatre ticket centre at 250-754-8550 or www.porttheatre.com.
