Tickets are on sale for four performances of “PAW Patrol Live! Race to the Rescue” at the Saroyan Theatre.

The live stage show, which is based on the preschool series airing on Nickelodeon, will appear at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each day on Oct. 7 and 8.

Ryder, Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Rubble, Zuma, Skye and Everest will come to life through Bunraku puppetry.

“Puppetry elements are built into costumes worn by real actors to create a wonderful combination of life-size pups and to make a stronger connection with the audience, says Jim Waters, producer of VStar Entertainment Group.

The PAW Patrol cast sings and dances during the live show, which offers lessons on citizenship, social skills and problem-solving. Classic theatrical scenery and high-tech video are used to visually transport families to an authentic PAW Patrol environment, including locations from the TV series like Adventure Bay, The Lookout, Seal Island, Farmer Yumi's farm and Jake's Mountain.

There will be special interactive videos so the audience can solve clues with the Pups.

Tickets for all four performances are on sale at the box office, at or by phone at 800-745-3000. The prices are $22, $28 and $44 with a limited number of gold circle tickets at $68 and VIP tickets for $133. For more information, go to
