Storytime Live! cast hit the stage.

Last week, John had the joy of heading directly into the “Snow-icane” to open Nickelodeon’s Storytime Live! U.S. theatrical tour. The show just completed the successful first full week of shows in York, Pittsburgh and Toledo — next, headed to Wallingford, State College, Syracuse and Appleton (Wisconsin).

John was sooo excited by all the snow, he sent this Crackberry pic to us, back here in sunny SoCal:

Outside the theatre in York, day before opening!

Come the opening night performance, John texted us:

Fan reactions = priceless.  Lots of kids coming dressed as Kai-lan.

Best part of the show? Ming Ming the Duck from Wonder Pets whose best line is “This Is SERIOUS!!!!!!”

The show is visiting scores of cities this year. As we said in a previous post, the production features four different Nick properties (all current top-rated preschool television shows) including: Dora the ExplorerThe BackyardigansWonder Pets! and Ni Hao, Kai-lan.
