‘It is amazing to bring Dora here. The Indian market is absolutely ready for live shows of this scale and size,’ said Australian director Luke Gallagher, whose company Life Like Touring conceptualised and designed the show.

The 80-minute-show titled ‘Dora’s Pirate Adventure,’ based on one of the tele-episodes of Nickelodeon, is scheduled to run at Siri Fort for three days, beginning 27 December, with three shows a day.

‘This particular episode is the writer’s favourite and it has always had a wonderful response. Children get involved in this production,’ Gallagher told in an interview.

‘Dora the Explorer’ show is based on a girl named Dora and her quest to reach a place.
The play promises to be a ‘play and learn’ extravaganza for children.

‘Dora will ask children questions and then they will respond to her queries. She will ask them which way she should go and she should do, so in that way she will engage them. It is more like empowering children by giving them an opportunity to speak their mind,’ Gallagher said.

The original episode, which is 22 minute long, has been expanded to close to an hour long play with many changes and additions.

‘There have been moments added where decisions have to be made going from place to place. The tele-episode typically hosts three locations but for the play it is all about the process of going from one location to another.

‘Songs have also been added. Dora will also have her best friend Boots the monkey, Diego and rest of her friends with her in her adventures,’ the director said.

‘Dora’s Pirate Adventure is an impressive production. The LED behind the performance will have the animated series going on. It was an intensive process. The background will move, ocean will go on, sea gull will fly by and things like that,’ Gallagher said.

WHEN: 27 December onwards, 12 pm
WHERE: Siri Fort Auditorium
