The zaniness continues as best friends, Toopy and Binoo, return to the live stage in a brand new theatrical production, Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games. Filled with whimsical exuberance, families across Canada will dance and sing-along with Koba Entertainment’s newest musical extravaganza!
The dynamic duo perfectly blends optimism, imagination, and spontaneity in their quest to find the best game ever! The story unfolds as a toy chest full of mismatched game and puzzle ignites a curious imagination: watch as Toopy and Binoo dance with X’s and O’s; wiggle with smiling snakes; try to outwit a gang of dancing ladders.
Along with tea-partying cats, energetic Dusteroo’s and fun-loving sheep, Toopy and Binoo embark on their wackiest and most interactive adventure yet!
Entertaining and unpredictable, Toopy and Binoo: Fun and Games integrates music, theatre, dance, puppetry and innovative multimedia technology to create an off-the-wall experience that will delight the entire family!
