Toopy and Binoo to be featured in City

Popular characters Toopy and Binoo will be hitting the Memorial Centre stage on Sept. 25 as part of an ambitious fall tour across western Canada.

Showtime is 6:30 p.m.

Koba Entertainment is proud to bring audiences an exciting live theatrical production starring Canada’s latest sensations, Toopy and Binoo.

Toopy is a mouse with a vivid imagination. His spontaneous and naive outlook on his surroundings transforms everything — for Toopy, the world is magical. Binoo, the tiny cat, is Toopy’s ideal companion.

He shares in the adventures with absolute wonder and untainted innocence. Often outdoing Toopy in imagination, his insight enables him to perceive things Toopy has missed without even realizing it.

The stage show, entitled Toopy and Binoo and the Marshmallow Moon, brings to life these two fun-loving and adorable characters whose antics are driven by their out-of-the-world imagination, and their unpredictable adventures inspire children to push their own limits

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 adorable 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.

Led by award-winning choreographer Patti Caplette as writer and director, the creative team also includes 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 Canada, France, Italy and India. Toopy and Binoo is the top-rated program for kids from two to six years old.
