OFF-THE-WALL PALS TOOPY AND BINOO RETURN
WITH 52-DATE CROSS-COUNTRY TOUR!
Winnipeg, MB – May 29, 2014 – Following the wildly successful production, Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon, join BFFs Toopy and Binoo as they return to the live stage in Koba Entertainment’s latest musical extravaganza, Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games. The deliriously silly twosome and a new batch of friends will be at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre on October 11, 2014. Tickets go on sale June 6 and are available through Ticketmaster, online at Ticketmaster.ca or by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
Toopy and Binoo perfectly blend optimism, imagination, and spontaneity in their quest to find the best game ever. The story unfolds when a toy chest full of mismatched games and puzzles ignites the pair’s imagination. Watch as Toopy and Binoo dance with Xs and Os, wiggle with smiling snakes, and try to outsmart a gang of dancing ladders. Along with tea-partying cats, energetic Dusteroos and a flock of fun-loving sheep, Toopy and Binoo embark on their wackiest and most interactive adventure yet.
Entertaining and unpredictable, Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games integrates music, theatre, dance, puppetry and innovative multimedia technology to create an off-the-wall experience that will delight the entire family.
