Time to Be a Hero, will take the Civic Center stage for one performance only on Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. The show is based on the popular Disney Junior television series, The PJ Masks!

The live show is based on eOne’s top-rated animated TV series, which airs daily on Disney Junior. Catboy, Owlette, Gekko, and the Baddies will delight fans of all ages with live performances featuring world-class production, familiar and original music, and immersive interactivity. 

PJ Masks, the hit series now in its second season, follows the thrilling nighttime adventures of three young friends who transform into their dynamic alter egos, Catboy, Owlette and Gekko, when they put on their pajamas at night and activate their animal amulets. Together, they embark on action-packed capers, solving mysteries and learning valuable lessons along the way.

“I am thrilled to be launching our second tour this Spring. Our first time around brought record-breaking sales and unprecendented success, and I am very excited that this show will be travelling to 45 new markets in April and May,” said Stephen Shaw, CEO of Round Room Presents and Lead Producer for the live tour. “PJ Masks is an amazing brand that transfers naturally to the live stage, and we can’t wait to delight audiences with this fun and exciting live show.”
