PJ Masks Live! Save The Day is coming to #LdnOnt

PJMasksSaveTheDayBanner

PJ Masks are on their way! Who’s ready to sing, dance and ‘all shout hooray’ along with the PJ Masks in their live musical show coming to Budweiser Gardens on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at 3:00 p.m.?! I know my kids sure are! They can’t wait  to spend the afternoon with this heroic trio!!

Catboy is my son’s favourite PJ Masks character by far. His favourite colour is blue, so he was naturally drawn to him from the Gekko….err, I mean, get-go! His entire bedroom is decorated with PJ Masks theme and he even has the Cat Car as his bed!! He also had a PJ Masks-themed birthday party this past year as well! So needless to say, he’s going to be beyond excited for this! My daughter also loves Owlette and cannot wait to dress up as her for the show!

THE PERFORMANCE

PJ Masks Live! Save The Day is back with this all new super-heroic, live musical show and from what I hear, we’re in for a really great performance! Leaping, flipping and climbing on stage, all to our favourite music, including some brand new songs! My kids love listening to the PJ Masks music at home and dancing to it – they’re going to be ecstatic when they see Catboy, Owlette and Gekko live on stage dancing with them! Even those sneaky villains Romeo, Night Ninja and Luna Girl will be making appearances!

It’s time to be a hero! Join us Saturday, April 3, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. at Budweiser Gardens in London as we watch the PJ Masks help save the day!
