The adventure of the Backyardigans continue in Campbell River in January.

Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens is an out-of-this-world theatrical production that will lead families on a heroic quest through the whimsical escapades of The Backyardigans at the Tidemark Theatre Jan. 27.

The Backyardigans gang – Pablo the penguin, Tyrone the moose, Uniqua the purple-spotted creature, Tasha the hippo, and Austin the kangaroo – are five high-spirited preschool friends whose zany imaginations are whisking them on yet another epic adventure!

Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens takes the audience on a non-stop musical expedition as The Backyardigans become Daring Detectives, Cookie Security Guards and Space Ace Reporters who travel in hot pursuit of a mysterious space ship and its missing passengers – the cookie-crumbing Aliens!  Tag along with the gang and their extraordinary host as they travel to shivering Frozen Toes Mountain, the blistering Hot Footsy Desert, and the volcanic Lost Pirate Island – singing and dancing the whole way!

The theatrical production is based on the top-rated preschool television program The Backyardigans, airing on Treehouse TV.

Quest for the Extraordinary Aliens plays the Tidemark Theatre, Jan. 27 at 6:30 p.m. Tikets are $25.50 and go on sale Oct. 22.
