From the producers of Broadway Across America’s “Go, Diego Go Live! The Great Jaguar Rescue,” “The Backyardigans Live! Tale of the Might Knights” is based on Neilson Media Research’s No. 2-rated preschool show on commercial television Nickelodeon’s “The Backyardigans.”

“Backyardigans Live!” follows backyard friends, Uniqua and Tyrone, as they become knights and embark on a quest to protect King Pablo’s unpredictable egg.

Along the way, Grabbing Goblin Austin and Flighty Fairy Tasha join the medieval mayhem as the runaway egg hatches feet and makes a dash up to Dragon Mountain, all the while encouraging the audience to sing, dance and laugh to songs of courage, friendship and the power of imagination.
