COSTA MESA, CA - The Orange County Performing Arts Center has scheduled four wonderful family shows that are sure to entertain and delight: The Enchanted Place, Sing-a-Long Wizard of Oz, Stars of the Peking Acrobats and Dora The Explorer Live - Search for the City of Lost Toys. 
Pooh in The Enchanted Place is a double bill of Bother! and The Enchanted Place Suite. In the first half of the evening, Peter Dennis brings to life the wit and humor of A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh with his performance of selected stories and poems from his award-winning show Bother!, while the second half of the program is the world premiere of the chamber ensemble version of The Enchanted Place Suite by the award-winning Southern California composer Don Davis.  Davis' score accompanies Milne's story In Which Pooh Invents a New Game and Eeyore Joins In and his poem Us Two. The entire program will charm all fans of the endearing tales of Winnie-the-Pooh, Christopher Robin and their many friends. Pooh in The Enchanted Place will be performed April 17 at 2 and 7:30 p.m. and at 2 p.m. on April 18. in Founders Hall. Tickets are $25 ages 16 and younger and $50 for adults.


The Center presents the grand finale to Orange County's Imagination Celebration on Sunday, May 16 at 4 p.m. in Segerstrom Hall with the incredible Stars of the Peking Acrobats. For more than 20 years, this amazing troupe has cast its spell on audiences around the world, demonstrating their high-energy, multi-faceted, multi-cultural production of acrobatics, feats of daring, explosive Kung Fu, and brilliant costumes. The Stars of the Peking Acrobats is non-stop entertainment, with astonishing stunts, gravity-defying tricks and spectacular dance that will hold audience members of all ages in complete awe. Tickets are $12 for all seats.
Sing-Along-Wizard of Oz takes audiences beyond the sun, beyond the moon and more than a little over the rainbow! Just as they did for the wildly popular Sing-a-Long Sound of Music that was a huge success this past year, Center audiences are encouraged to come to Sing-a-Long Wizard of Oz dressed as their favorite L. Frank Baum characters, enjoy the classic MGM motion picture starring Judy Garland - and sing along to the immortal Harold Arlen songs! And as sure as there are good witches and bad witches - there will be a costume contest each night - for young and the young-at-heart! (Patrons are asked to leave Toto at home, please.) Performances of Sing-a-Long Wizard of Oz will be Thursday and Friday, May 20 and 21 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, May  22 at 1 and 5 p.m. in Segerstrom Hall. Tickets are $12, $16, $20 and $22.
Nickelodeon and Clear Channel Entertainment have teamed up to create a magical theatrical show starring Dora the Explorer. Based on Nickelodeon's popular animated series, this is the first family theatrical show to star a Latina heroine. Dora The Explorer Live - Search for the City of Lost Toys sold out at New York's Radio City Music Hall where more than 100,000 people cheered this enchanting stage show.  Adventurous seven-year-old Dora and her best friend Boots, along with Backpack, Map, Swiper the Fox, Tico and Benny will take audiences through her imaginative, tropical world filled with jungles, beaches and rainforests. Each step of their journey consists of a problem or puzzle that Dora and the audience must solve in order to move on to the next challenge. She is proudly bilingual and uses her knowledge of English and Spanish to communicate with her friends, overcome obstacles and reach her goals. Along the way, Dora teaches Spanish words and phrases to the audience. Dora the Explorer Live! - Search for the City of Lost Toys, will be performed Wednesday, June 23 at 7 p.m., Thursday, June 24 at 10:30 a.m. and 7:30 p.m., Friday, June 25 at 7 p.m. and Saturday at 11 a.m., 2 and 5 p.m. and Sunday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tickets are $17, $22 and $30.
