Nickelodeon is bringing the production Dora the Explorer Live! Dora’s Pirate Adventure to South Africa in cooperation with Life Like Touring and Blu Blood.


The audience will go on an exciting adventure with Dora and her friends to Treasure Island in search of the ultimate pirate party and you have to help them navigate their way there. Dora’s fans will have to use their map-reading, counting, music and language skills to help her make it safely to the island and avoid the sneaky fox Swiper.

More than four million people in more than 30 countries have enjoyed Dora Live! productions so far. Children from Egypt to Kuweit and Russia to Singapore have enjoyed the theatrical experience with their favourite Nickelodeon character.


Chris Gifford, one of the creators of Dora, says she’s so popular worldwide because she’s a good kid and she takes the audience on adventures in an interactive way.

“She’s universal,” says Gifford, “because in the end all the stories are about friendship and love. And with Dora you always know everything will work out just fine.” SONY DSC Tickets are available from Computicket outlets, at or on 0861-915-8000, and at Checkers and Shoprite stores nationwide. You’ll also be able to buy tickets at the box offices at Emperors Palace and GrandWest Casino.
