Dora’s Pirate Adventure

Dora Live in South Africa from Nickelodeon Africa on Vimeo.

That’s right, Dora the Explorer Live! Dora’s Pirate Adventure, the ultimate, fantastic family-friendly theatrical experience, opens at the ICC, Durban (30 June-3 July), before moving on to Emperors Palace, Johannesburg (7-10 July), and finally dropping anchor at the Grand Arena, GrandWest Casino, in Cape Town (14-17 July).

Families and kids are invited to join Dora and her pals Boots and Diego on a voyage of discovery as they embark on an exciting trip to Treasure Island in search of the ultimate pirate party. Help them navigate over the Dancing Mountain and through the Silly Singing Bridge in pursuit of the Pirate Piggies. Along the way, Dora the Explorer fans will use their map-reading, counting, musical and language skills to successfully help Dora reach Treasure Island and avoid that pesky fox, Swiper!
