The fabulousness continues!
Toopy and Binoo are warming up their funny muscles and stretching their active imaginations in preparation of hitting the live stage this fall. Due to a fast sellout, Toopy and Binoo have arranged a second show in Courtenay.
Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon brings to life the two fun-loving and adorable characters whose antics are driven by their out-of-this-world imaginations. Toopy and Binoo’s unpredictable adventures inspire children to push their own limits!
You only get to make a first impression once! Preparing for his stage debut, Toopy has to not only find the perfect song to sing, but he also has to find the perfect place to perform it!
As Toopy and his best friend Binoo embark on their most important musical quest ever, they encounter a Blue Cat Blues Band, a Loud Mouth Crooner Fish, some Strollin’ Sheep, a pair of Love Struck Dragons and many other zany characters along the way.
Entertaining and whimsical, Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon is a fairy-tale for our times; it incorporates music, theatre, dance, puppetry and innovative multimedia technology to weave a story that will tickle the imagination of the entire family!
