This brand-new production, which begins touring in the U.S. Feb. 2023, is an interactive live stage show, where members of the audience get to be heroes unleashed, helping the pups solve puzzles as honorary members of the pack, while they navigate the globe to make it back to Adventure Bay in the nick of time. Featuring stunning visual effects, captivating storytelling and a vibrant musical score that will have guests dancing in their seats and singing along, this staged extravaganza is jam-packed with action and fun for the whole family! Pre-sale begins Tuesday, Sept. 13th and select markets will go on public on sale on Friday, Sept. 16th.  

"When we first teamed up with our incredible partners at Nickelodeon in 2016 to unveil our first live stage show, PAW Patrol Live! "Race to the Rescue," we knew we had something special," said Eric Grilly, President Resident & Affiliate Shows Divisions, of Cirque du Soleil Entertainment Group. "What we didn't know, was that six years later, the PAW Patrol franchise would be as strong as ever, and we would be preparing to launch our third live stage show to the delight of an entirely new legion of young PAW Patrol fans. We are thrilled to bring this incredible new production to stages across North America in 2023!"

"Millions of fans have danced, sang along and joined the PAW Patrol pups in daring rescues as the PAW Patrol Live! shows have toured around the world to sold-out crowds," said Rachel Karpf, Vice President, Experiences and Live Stage, Paramount Consumer Products and Experiences. "As we prepare to celebrate the 10th anniversary of PAW Patrol next year, we are thrilled to team up with the phenomenal team at VStar Entertainment Group to bring PAW Patrol Live! "Heroes Unite" to the stage in 2023, giving families an opportunity to create lifelong memories and introduce kids to the excitement of live theatre."

PAW Patrol Live! "Heroes Unite" follows Ryder and the PAW Patrol pups as they face their greatest challenge yet. When Mayor Humdinger clones Robo Dog, chaos ensues all over the world. It's up to the PAW Patrol to catch the clones, rescue Robo Dog, and show that when the going gets "ruff," lending a paw makes you the ultimate TOP HERO! This new adventure is going to be PAWsome!

"Heroes Unite" marks the third VStar Entertainment Group and Nickelodeon touring collaboration under the PAW Patrol banner.  Since its debut in the fall of 2016, the PAW Patrol Live! Stage shows have been seen by over 4.5 million people, providing fans in over 40 countries with an unforgettable Broadway-style production.
