In this children's musical production, adventuring superstar Dora the Explorer and her best friend, Boots the Monkey, make the leap from Nick Jr. to the stage during Dora's Pirate Adventure. Pestered by a nefarious group of Pirate Piggies, the bilingual duo entreats audiences for help in map reading, counting, and speaking foreign languages as they make their way past Dancing Mountain and on to Treasure Island. The on-stage treasure hunt is impossible without crowd participation, which fosters problem-solving skills in the preschool set and encourages any backpacks in attendance to reveal their sentience. After the show, Groupon customers enjoy an exclusive meet and greet with the stars and should bring a camera for the resulting photo opportunity.
Master Theater often hosts visiting Eastern European artists on its modern, LED-equipped stage. The 1,400 plush seats have been privy to performances from ballets to rock concerts, the tunes of Ray Charles to the jokes of Jackie Mason, bringing culture to audiences without putting them through an etiquette course.
