Kelowna loves Toopy and Binoo
The local popularity of the children's cartoon characters Toopy and Binoo has been reflected by the addition of a second musical show in Kelowna featuring the two characters.
The two shows will be Sept. 20, 3:30 and 6:30 p.m., at the Kelowna Community Theatre. Tickets are $27.50.
Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon brings to life the two characters, whose antics are driven by their out-of-this-world imaginations. As Toopy and his best friend Binoo embark on their most important musical quest ever, where they will encounter a Blue Cat Blues Band, a Loud Mouth Crooner Fish, some Strollin’ Sheep, a pair of Love Struck Dragons and many other zany characters along the way.
Entertaining and whimsical, Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon incorporates music, theatre, dance, puppetry and innovative multimedia technology.
The theatrical production is a production from Koba Entertainment, the producers behind other theatrical productions including The Backyardigans: Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens and Max & Ruby: Bunny Party.
Led by award-winning choreographer Patti Caplette as writer and director, the creative team includes Juno Award winner Norman Foote as co-writer and music director, Andrew Beck as scenic designer, Luc Lavergne as video designer, and costume designs from Maydwell Mascotts, Sue Dicks Design, and Anne Armit and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet wardrobe department.
Toopy and Binoo is based on the best-selling children’s books by Dominique Jolin. The characters made their television debut in 2005 and are a daily fixture on Treehouse TV in Canada, the top rated program for kids between the ages of 2 and 6.
