If you are the parent of a toddler or preschooler, then I’m sure you’ve heard of Super Why. On the days that we watch television, our television is always turned to PBS. I appreciate that the programming is educational and that children actually learn something constructive from watching the shows. My daughter enjoys all of the programming but her favorite by far is Super Why. Just the other day she told me all about the tooth fairy and how she needed to put her tooth under her pillow. When I asked her who told her that, she grinningly told me, “Super Why.” So when I heard Super Why Live: You’ve Got The Power! was coming to Memphis in July, I knew I had to take her!
ABOUT SUPER WHY
Reading is power and Super WHY is the only preschool property created to help kids learn the fundamentals of reading through interactive storybook adventures. Produced by Out of the Blue Enterprises in conjunction with DHX Media, the series has a groundbreaking multimedia aesthetic – with a winning combination of two- and three-dimensional animation formats, relatable and engaging characters and immersive environments. The program represents a novel approach to preschool educational television, featuring a team of superhero characters with literacy-based powers, who jump into books to find answers to everyday preschool challenges.
ABOUT THE SHOW
Super WHY Live vibrantly brings to life Super Why, Alpha Pig, Wonder Red, Princess Presto and their puppy pal Woofster, who each take children on larger-than-life, imagination-stimulating adventures. With help from the audience, the characters embark on magical, out-of-this-world journeys to explore what they’ve always wanted to be – from a ship’s captain to a rock star and more! While singing, dancing and interacting with the characters on stage along the way, pint-sized fans (and parents, alike!) discover who really has the power to make dreams come true!
Showcasing cutting-edge technology, visual effects and aerial stunts, Super WHY Live is a sensory spectacular that will dazzle and delight audiences of all ages. The new production features a team of top talent, including a Tony Award-winning scenic designer and an Emmy and Tony Award-nominated lighting designer, who create a mesmerizing setting for the show.
