Get ready to see a stage production that will bring to life Cartoon Network’s popular heroes from Ben 10, The Amazing World of Gumball, Adventure Time and The Powerpuff Girls.

The show, which is aptly titled Cartoon Network Live! Heroes Unite, will be held at the Du Forum, Yas Island from October 11 to 14. Tickets range from Dh75 to Dh750.

This interactive show, which is suitable for kids and families, will train the spotlight on Kelvin Gizmo, scientist extraordinaire, who takes us into the world of Cartoon Network which is under threat of Zarr, the evil robot. You will embark on a journey through the Land of Ooo, the city of Townsville and Elmore and meet their inhabitants.

The show is directed by award-winning director and choreographer Bart Doerfler, known for his work on The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios Hollywood and companies such as The Walt Disney Company. Besides Doerfler, the creative team consists of Stephen Emmer (musical director), Cynthia Nordstrom (costume designer), David Smeets (lighting designer) and Marinus de Graaf (set designer) and Michael Al-far (video content designer).

“We are thrilled to bring this brand new live stage production Cartoon Network Live! Heroes Unite to Abu Dhabi and get the opportunity to share this first-hand experience with our young audience, families and Cartoon Network fans of all ages bringing them closer to their favourite superheroes,” said organiser Ali Haidary, CEO and founder, SES Live.
