Arthur LIVE! is coming to the Midwest  


For more than 30 years, children have enjoyed reading Arthur Adventure, the award-winning book series by Marc Brown, that has sold more than 60 million books. 


PBS TV began airing the Arthur television series just over a decade ago, and it continues to be one of the top children’s shows, as merited by winning a Peabody and five Emmy Awards.  Now children and their families can enjoy Arthur LIVE! as he comes to life to celebrate over 30 years of educating and entertaining young children.


Arthur the Aardvark and his friends from Elwood City explore real issues that face real kids in this all-new musical production of Arthur LIVE


Arthur LIVE! stresses the values of teamwork, learning and the joys of being a kid. In this musical adventure, D.W. is jealous when her big brother Arthur loses a tooth and gets a visit from the Tooth Fairy. Arthur explains that the Tooth Fairy comes only when you lose a tooth and put it under your pillow at night, so D.W. dreams up some hilarious (but unsuccessful) plans to trick the Tooth Fairy into coming. Finally, Arthur decides to reward D.W.’s efforts by helping the Tooth Fairy!


Featuring a dozen original songs—including ”Good and Ready,” “The Loose Tooth Wiggle” and "T-Rex Rocks,"—Arthur LIVE! keeps the audience engaged and tapping their toes. The show includes a cast of characters:  the lovable, intrepid Arthur; his feisty sister DW; his good buddies Buster and Brain; his nemesis Francine; and new stars including the warm, wise and wacky Tooth Fairy. 


An innovative, page-turning pop-up storybook set and special-effects move the story through Elwood City , Arthur’s House, Mr. Ratburn’s Classroom, the Dentist Office and the Dinosaur Museum .  To learn more about Arthur visit www.pbskids.org or for Arthur Live! info, visit www.arthurtour.com
