Audiences of all ages were treated to a unique interactive experience at the Cartoon Network Live! Heroes Unite stage show, marking the show’s much-anticipated Middle East premiere in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The show, which brings all the Cartoon Network heroes together live on one stage for the first time, will run in Bahrain until 26 August at the Bahrain International Exhibition Centre, and is presented by the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), in association with Live Nation Middle East and Turner’s Cartoon Network. Tickets for the event are still on sale online via manama.platinumlist.net, and are also being sold at physical ticketing booths at the venue.
Ali El Hagar, Licensing Director, Turner MENAT commented: “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. Cartoon Network Live: Heroes Unite is a high quality production that really captures this ambition, with impressive sets, costumes, music and a great story to match. It was fantastic to see the audience reaction on the opening night in Bahrain.”
The event features Cartoon Network’s most popular heroes from Ben 10, The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time and The Powerpuff Girls. In the show, we meet Kelvin Gizmo, scientist extraordinaire, who takes us into the world of Cartoon Network which is under threat of Zarr, the mean 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, Kelvin Gizmo will hopefully be able to stop Zarr and his evil plans.
The production brings together an international, award-winning creative team to ensure a quality family entertainment stage show for audiences of all ages. The show is directed by award-winning director and choreographer Bart Doerfler, known for his work on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood, The Walt Disney Company, The Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus, Holiday On Ice and Dreamworks. Besides Bart Doerfler, the creative team consists of Stephen Emmer (Musical Director), Cynthia Nordstrom (Costume Designer), David Smeets (Lighting Designer), Marinus de Graaf (Set Designer) and Michael Al-far (Video Content Designer).
