Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Share Secrets Of The Sewer, Ninja Tactics And Teamwork At Reading Public Museum, PA

Official Reading Public Museum Press Release via and Reading Magazine:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™ Share Secrets of the Sewer, Ninja Tactics and Teamwork at Reading Public Museum

READING, PA – After three decades of battling evil and exemplifying teamwork, the beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) will appear in a museum exhibit for children and families to enjoy at the Reading Public Museum. The four funny “heroes in a half–shell” will share life lessons and team-building skills with their crime-fighting tactics in Nickelodeon’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets of the Sewer.

Families will be transported to the underground home of the crime-fighting heroes to see what really happens in their secret hideaway. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brothers Leonardo (the tactical, courageous leader in blue), Michelangelo (the free-spirited jokester in orange), Raphael (the aggressive tough guy in red), and Donatello (the scientist and technological genius in purple) invite families to their New York City sewer lair to train together and learn about the Turtles’ comedic, skillful strategies.

Step into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Laboratory.

“Every summer we aim to provide the community with a hands-on, fun, educational exhibit. We are excited to partner with Customers Bank to host TMNT for families to come and explore the sewers of New York, working together to overcome obstacles while learning and having fun along the way,” noted John Graydon Smith, Director and CEO of The Museum.

Climb through the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Maze.

The Turtles are known and respected for their teamwork. As the TMNT’s sensei and adoptive father Splinter often tells them, “Together there is nothing you cannot accomplish.” Through team-building challenges, collaborative games and mind-teasing puzzles, families and friends will learn skills to help them successfully work together. Here are a few examples:

- Build a “bridge” together and think creatively as a team to overcome challenges.
- Assemble two electrical circuit puzzles by taking one apart to build another.
- Plan ahead and use patience to navigate the rope maze.
- Practice ninja speed and slicing skills while playing a dexterity-based computer game.
- Shred up and practice your balance on skateboards.
- Create a sewer pipe together and see where it goes.

Preschoolers will set off on thrilling adventures in a kingdom far away where there lives a... Princess Knight! Nickelodeon's brand-new animated preschool series, Nella the Princess Knight, follows Nella, an unconventional 8-year-old who possesses the royal qualities of a princess, like compassion and grace, while also embodying the courage and determination of a brave knight.

She transcends traditional roles and expectations through her ability to transform into Nella the Princess Knight, protecting her kingdom with the help of her friends: Trinket, Nella's glamorous unicorn and best friend; Sir Garrett, a loyal and adventurous knight; and Clod, Garrett's trusty steed.

In the series premiere, "Princess Nella's Orc-hestra"/"The Blaine Game" (#101), a wild orc disrupts Nella's concert. Later, Blaine thinks he can do everything better than Nella, and sets out to prove it by finding the famous pink polka-dotted dragon egg.

Online at, parents and children can find out more about Nella, die Ritterprinzessin and watch exclusive clips from the show.

Nella the Princess Knight is created by Christine Ricci (curriculum advisor, Blaze and the Monster Machines, Dora the Explorer), with Robert Vargas (head writer, Zack and Quack (Zack Und Quack)) serving as an executive producer on the series. It is the newest show to join Nick's top-ranked preschool roster, airing alongside hit series like PAW Patrol, Rusty Rivets, Blaze and the Monster Machines (Blaze und die Monster-Maschinen) and Shimmer and Shine (Shimmer und Shine).

Nickelodeon UK To Premiere New Movie "The Standoff" On Friday 26th May 2017

Nickelodeon UK and Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK, will premiere The Standoff, a brand-new teen comedy movie from the writer and producer of A Cinderella Story, on Friday 26th May 2017 at 5:30pm, as part of May Half-Term on Nick!

They can barely stand each other, but can they stand next to each other for two days, without sleep, for the chance to win the car of their dreams? Only time will tell in the all-new film The Standoff!

At Big Jim's Auto Depot there's only one rule. The last man – or woman – standing wins. Eight teens enter, one teen leaves. Actually, all eight teens leave, but only one leaves with the ride of their dreams. To reach that dream, they're going through a nightmare. Keep your hand on the car. That sounds simple enough, but two days of sleep deprivation and fierce competition can make things awfully hard!

Amy and Farrell are two local teens who find themselves up against the toughest field of competitors to ever stand around a car lot. So who's it going to be? Sophie, the social media sensation? Lala, the science queen? How about Colby, the football stud, or Klyde, the adrenaline junkie? Maybe it'll be Jerome, the wanna-be hip-hop star, or Chris, the all-American good guy who may be too good to be true.

At the end of the day, only one of those teens will walk away a winner – by winning The Standoff!

The Standoff stars Stony Blyden (Hunter Street) as Klyde Kosar, Audrey Whitby (The Thundermans) as Lala Zzyzx, Sydney Park (Instant Mom, One Crazy Cruise) as Emerson, Alex Wolff (The Naked Brothers Band: The Movie, The Naked Brothers Band, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle) as Zane, Ciara Hanna (Big Time Rush, Power Rangers Megaforce, Power Rangers Super Megaforce) as Christie, Timothy Granaderos (13 Reasons Why) as Jack Guthrie, Olivia Holt (Kickin' It, I Didn't Do It, Dog with a Blog) as Amy Roberts, Ryan McCartan (The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again, R.L. Stine's Monsterville: The Cabinet of Souls, Liv and Maddie) as Farrell Bennett, McKaley Miller (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Awkward., Wizards of Waverly Place) as Sophie Jackson, Vanessa Merrell (YouTubers React, Jane the Virgin) as Maya, Veronica Merrell (YouTubers React, Jane the Virgin) as Mia, Chandler Massey (Days of Our Lives) as Chris Goodman, Regan Burns (Zoey 101, Dog with a Blog, Sonny with a Chance) as Big Jim Malone, Julian Works (The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story, Disney Get Connected) as Jerome Bryant, Radek Lord (Supah Ninjas, Girlfriend's Day, Ballers) as Frank, Diana Caravella as 'Crazy Cat Lady', Daniel Vasquez as Colby Mann, Howard Cai (The Thundermans, Grease Live!, Alien Encounters, I Pranked My Parents) as Gamekingninja, and Chelsey Knutson and Una Jensen as Cheerleaders.

The Standoff (also known as The Braking Point) is directed by Ilyssa Goodman, written by Leigh Dunlap, and produced by DunGood Films. The movie was released in the USA on Tuesday 20th September 2016.

Following the films debut, Nickelodeon UK & Ireland/HD will encore The Standoff on Saturday 27th May 2017 at 10:30am and 4:00pm.

Which competitor will you be supporting?: #teamamy, #teamfarrell, #teamchris, #teamlala, #teamsophie, #teamklyde, #teamjerome or #teamcolby?
