I wore a silk suit and my husband wore a dress jacket and pants. People are dressing rather sloppy for the theater lately. It is a special place and I enjoy seeing the folks dressed up. It makes it seem more special..

Mitsua Market on Paularino, 1.5 blocks east of Bristol on the South side of the 405 has a great food court with all kinds of Japanese Food available. The market has a great "to-go" sushi fare and in the early evening most of the sushi, made that afternoon, is marked down for a quick sale. I especially like the noodle shop closest to the check out stands of the Market, and their spicy Pork Noodles are terrific. More expensive and the best in the food court is the noodle shop in the middle of the court, about 3 stalls to the right of the first noodle shop, to the right of it, is a stall that has a great tempura, teriyaki combo, that I've enjoyed for years. Mitsua Market has wonderful desserts with shops specializing in frozen mochi and pastries, as well as fare only found in Japan. In fact, going to Mitsua is to be transported to an authentic Japanese SuperMarket and Food Court.

I wish the Tier 1 seats would have been closer. There were rows and rows of empty seats in front of us.

The show was great, very lively, many songs throughout and the storyline was easy for my daughter to follow. A guest appearance of Dora excited all the children the most of the whole show, but there wasn't a dull moment the entire time. My husband...continued

The Story

It’s the biggest party of the year, the Animal Carnivale! Every year all the animals gather at the Great Pyramid for the Carnivale, but the party cannot start until the Chief of Carnivale makes a special sound. This year’s chief is Baby Jaguar, who will use his special growl to start the Carnivale.

Everyone is headed to the Animal Carnivale when the Bobo brothers show up with a magic bottle that captures Baby Jaguar’s growl. Without his growl, Baby Jaguar can’t start the Carnivale. Diego and Baby Jaguar need the help of everyone in the audience to get to the Great Pyramid and get his growl back from the Bobo brothers.

Diego and Baby Jaguar head out on an adventure-packed quest to get Baby Jaguar’s growl back. Along the way they rescue animals in the rainforest, dance through a coconut-tree forest, traverse a raging river with a giant waterfall, and are helped along by the special appearance of Diego’s cousin, Dora. Everyone also learns how each of us is special in our own way.

In an exciting climatic scene, Baby Jaguar and Diego find the Bobos inside the pyramid and—with the help of the audience—get Baby Jaguar’s growl back. As the sun sets on the exciting day in the rainforest, all the animals of the world meet at the Animal Carnivale and their Chief, Baby Jaguar, starts the big finale with his GROWL!

The Production

This Broadway-level production is created by the same team as the record-breaking Dora the Explorer Live, which was seen by over 3 million people. The show is interactive, with every child in the audience getting their own Jaguar mask, which they then use to help rescue animals during the show. Audience members sing, do the cha-cha, travel down a rainforest river, and learn how each of us is special in our own way.

The show also includes familiar songs from the TV show, plus 12 original new songs created exclusively for the live show by the song writing team of George Noriega and Joel Someillan—the creators of the music for Go, Diego, Go! on TV.
