  • Is my child old enough to see Nick Jr. Live?

    The specific appropriate age range for children is 1 to 6 but, as a live stage experience, Nick Jr. Live! is shared and enjoyed by the entire family. We love seeing children and their parents and grandparents all coming together to enjoy our productions.

  • At what age do I need to purchase a ticket for my child?

    Everybody who has reached their first birthday requires a ticket to the show. Please note, public event laws vary nationwide from county to county and some venues may require all patrons, regardless of age, to have a ticket. Please contact your local venue to confirm their specific policy.

  • What can I expect at a Nick Jr. Live! show?

    Nick Jr. Live! provides a unique entertainment opportunity for you and your child where they can see some of their favorite characters live. As one of your child's first theatrical performances, it marks the beginning of a lifelong journey of enjoying and learning through live performance. Here are a few things to remember as you plan your visit.

    Most children are familiar with entertainment that happens on television and computer monitors. Explain that this will be different, because there will be a story happening live in front of them. The story doesn't stop if you leave the room, but there will be a break in the middle.

    Have fun! Sing along, dance, clap, and join in the audience participation elements. But, be safe as well as considerate to those around you. Please don't allow your child to stand on chairs or put your child on your shoulders.

    Please also note that during the show there may be flashing lights and spotlights, loud music and noises and there may be confetti at the end.

  • What is the VIP Package?

    Nick Jr. Live! VIPs are treated to premium seating and access to an after-show Meet & Greet with Dora the Explorer and Rubble from PAW Patrol*. Plus, get an exclusive photo opportunity with Blaze from Blaze and the Monster Machines! VIPs also receive a VIP merchandise item and souvenir lanyard. Each adult & child (aged 1 & up) must have a VIP ticket.

    *VIP Meet and Greet characters subject to change.

    VIP package purchasers should go to the check-in table prior to the event to pick up the VIP information packet. Each adult and child (age 1 and up) in a group must have a VIP Ticket. Patrons will be directed where to go for the after-show event. The Meet & Greet VIP event will start shortly after the end of show and lasts approximately 40 minutes. Latecomers may miss the opportunity.

    Don’t forget your camera – you’ll want to capture every moment!

    Parents, please note that some of our Meet & Greet characters are full-body, human costumes. While most children are excited to meet the characters up-close, others can feel frightened. If your child is scared or hesitant to meet the characters, we recommend moving to the back of the line; this will allow your child the extra time he/she may need to warm up to the characters and see how they interact with other children present.

    A VIP ticket must be purchased by a parent/guardian along with the child’s VIP ticket. Children are not allowed access without a VIP paid adult. Please note, public event laws vary nationwide from county to county and some venues may require all patrons, regardless of age, to have a ticket. Please contact your local arena to confirm their specific policy.
