The touring production arrives at Genting International Showroom to focus on a very vexing problem. Dora has lost her teddy bear Osito and she needs help to search for him. As Dora venture through a jungle of obstacles with nothing more than a map, Boots, Backpack, Diego and her other courageous friends to retrieve Osito, the audience will be mesmerized by an elaborate sets and rousing musical numbers. Going through the journey with Dora, we will meet up with the sneaky fox Swiper who plans to foil her quest at every turns possible. Engaging the audience through a variety of familiar songs, dance and smart problem solving, there is no doubt that Dora will eventually succeed, as she can sing out her catchphrase at the end – We Did it!

Kevin Tann, Vice President of Promotions & Entertainment at Resorts World Genting mentions that “This is a great show that provides learning and entertainment in a fun way through crowd engagement that will see the kids interacting with the characters. Continuing our fine tradition of providing the greatest entertainment for the whole family, Dora the Explorer arrives for the first time in Malaysia to transport audiences into one of the intrepid adventurer’s thrilling adventures, brought to life through the magic of song and dance.”

Syahrizan Mansor, Vice President of Nickelodeon Brand Asia proudly shared on Dora as a character to look up to saying, “At Nickelodeon, we puts kids first in everything we do. We’re proud to say that Dora the Explorer LIVE! Search for the City of Lost Toys has already been seen by 2 million fans globally. Kids stand to learn a lot from Dora who is an inspiring character: she celebrates girl power, she’s bilingual and she instils important values on being a leader.”

Dora The Explorer LIVE! Search for the City of Lost Toys is produced by Life Like Touring and Nickelodeon and conceived by co-creator of the Dora the Explorer television show Chris Gifford. The show first premiered in Melbourne, Australia in 2010 and has gone on to tour more than 15 countries since, entertaining millions of people across the world. Being the first time in Malaysia at Resorts World Genting, the 14-strong cast and crew will act, sing and dance through 18 songs over the 90 minutes production (with a 15-minute intermission). Familiar songs from the television series will be intermingled with original songs written specifically for the live stage show.

“Putting Dora on stage has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my professional life and it has given me the opportunity of travelling to Australia, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia.” Says Chris Gifford, who co-created Dora the Explorer with Valerie Walsh Valdes and Eric Weiner in 2000. “The television show runs for only twenty-two minutes so in the theatre, we have more time to play with the dynamics of the story and with the relationships between the characters. Dora can take the audience on the kind of adventure which the kids couldn’t experience for themselves. She’s a good kid and she’s also universal because ultimately these stories are about friendship and love.”

As from our team, we have really indulged ourselves in the LIVE show of Dora The Explorer. The choreography of the show was well-arranged and entertaining. The essence of the television show was brought up to LIVE on stage and we are really amazed by it. The way Dora interacted with the crowd is also very delightful. During our review session, we can see that the character has caught the audiences’ focus (especially the kids) and engaged with them perfectly. “Where is our next destination?” said Dora. And the kid audiences were replying responsively! This was something really memorable to see. Apart from that, we really love all the songs being played during the show. They are all very nostalgic and catchy as well.  We also felt impressed by the way how props and background changes were done seamlessly during transition of each scene.

Post show, we have interviewed the choreographer of the show, Katie Ditchburn. During the interview, she mentioned that she really enjoyed choreographing for Dora The Explorer LIVE! Search For The City of Lost Toys. Apart from this show, she has also choreographed for other Nickelodeon’s LIVE show as well. When asked whether they would consider bringing other LIVE shows to Malaysia, she replied that they would be keen to if there are invitations from the local organizer. As for Dora The Explorer LIVE!, her favourite song from the live performance would be “We Did It!”!
