Toronto, ON – March 14th, 2017 – Entertainment One (eOne) and Round Room Presents are proud to announce that PJ MASKS LIVE!, a brand-new, fully-immersive musical production, will take to the stage, touring across North America.

PJ Masks, the hit animated TV series, follows the thrilling nighttime adventures of three young friends who transform into their dynamic alter egos, Catboy, Owlette and Gekko, when they put on their pajamas at night and activate their animal amulets. Together, they embark on action-packed capers, solving mysteries and learning valuable lessons along the way.
This creation of the PJ Masks live show marks a new partnership between the Entertainment One Music and Entertainment One Family teams, as well as with stage show producer, Round Room Presents.
“There is a natural ability for our Music management team here at eOne to showcase their creative and logistical strengths with a rigorous touring schedule that a world-class brand like PJ Masks demands,” said Chris Taylor, Global President, eOne Music. “This production with our colleagues at eOne Family, and our partners Round Room Presents, is the first of what we hope will be many more tours to come.”
“Our landmark property, PJ Masks, brings popular superhero themes to a preschool audience and we’re incredibly excited about the upcoming live tour,” said Joan Grasso, VP of Licensing in North America for eOne. “PJ MASKS LIVE! is a winning combination – both preschool boys and girls will love the interactive experience of seeing their beloved heroes on stage, and kids of all ages will be empowered by the show’s heroic and fantasy-based storylines and central themes of friendship and teamwork.”
“I am thrilled to be partnering with eOne to bring a live version of the series to PJ Masks fans throughout the U.S. and Canada,” said Stephen Shaw, CEO of Round Room Presents and Lead Producer and Promoter for the live tour. “PJ Masks is a vibrant brand that transfers naturally to the live stage, and we can’t wait to delight audiences with this fun and engaging new show.”
