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!

Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon is a theatrical production by Koba Entertainment, the producers behind other memorable theatrical productions including The Backyardigans: Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens and Max & Ruby: Bunny Party.

Led by award-winning choreographer Patti Caplette as writer and director, the creative team includes Juno Award winner Norman Foote as co-writer and music director, Andrew Beck as scenic designer, Luc Lavergne as video designer, and costume designs from Maydwell Mascotts, Sue Dicks Design, and Anne Armit and the Royal Winnipeg Ballet wardrobe department.

Toopy and Binoo is based on the best-selling children’s books by Dominique Jolin. The characters made their television debut in 2005 and quickly climbed into the hearts of children in hundreds of countries including Treehouse TV (Canada), Tiji (France), Rai Sat (Italy) and Sun TV (India).

Toopy & Binoo is a top-rated program for kids from two to six years old.

After they begin a Canadian tour Sept. 8 in Surrey, Toopy and Binoo perform Sept. 11 at the Sid Williams Theatre in Courtenay. A new 3:30 p.m. how has been added to the 6:30 p.m. performance.
