Kids around the country are squealing with delight as Big Concerts announces that Cartoon Network will be bringing Cartoon Network Live! to South Africa for the very first time in 2018! This comes hot off the heels of Nickelodeon’s Nick Fest which has been enthralling audiences for three years in a row now as well as the ever-popular Disney On Ice. Cartoon Network Live!, will feature Cartoon Network’s most popular heroes from Ben 10, The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time and The Powerpuff Girls, in an interactive and spectacular stage production for kids over the age of five.
In Cartoon Network Live! Kelvin Gizmo, scientist extraordinaire, takes us into the world of Cartoon Network which is under threat of Zarr, the evil robot. We travel through the Land of Ooo, the city of Townsville and Elmore and meet their famous inhabitants. With them, and the help of the audience, Kevin Gizmo will hopefully be able to stop Zarr and his evil plans.
The show will take place in Cape Town from the 26th of June before arriving in Johannesburg from the 3rd of July. The production brings together an international, award-winning creative team to ensure a quality family entertainment stage show for audiences of all ages.
Justin Van Wyk, CEO at Big Concerts – A Live Nation Company added “We are very excited to work together with Cartoon Network and the Live Nation team. Cartoon Network Live! will feature, for the very first time, all the familiar and beloved Cartoon Network characters, together in one live stage show. Live Nation always strives to bring fans closer to their idols and with this Cartoon Network Live! we will be doing just that!”
Maria Rosaria Milone, Senior Director, Category Management & Agent Markets, Cartoon Network Enterprises EMEA commented: “Considering Cartoon Network’s leading position in South Africa, we are extremely excited about this partnership. Creating interactive and immersive brand experiences provides not only kids but their entire family with new and exciting ways to engage with our shows and characters. Throughout the development of this production, Live Nation have matched our passion and ambition to bring Cartoon Network’s iconic brands to life, and we can’t wait to see the African fan reaction to this fantastic new live show when it comes to their city.”
