The Doodlebops are bringing their colourful rock show to Oshawa on Feb. 12.
The Together Forever Tour hits the General Motors Centre at 7 p.m. with a show for the whole family, said producer Patti Caplette.
The Doodlebops, Deedee, Rooney and Moe Doodle, have been entertaining pre-school children on TV, including CBC, for several years. This is their fourth tour.
“But this is their first cross-Canada tour that they’ve ever done,” Caplette said during a break preparing for the Peterborough show.
She said the show features original music by Carl Lennox, the music director, in the styles from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. There’s also dancing by the Doodlebop dancers, original sets and costumes and giant-screen technology.
“The Doodlebops are heralded as the worlds’ hottest rockin’ band for kids,” Caplette said.
“They’re going to put on an amazing rock show for kids. It’s everything you’d see in a rock show but tailored for kids.”
She added the entire family will enjoy the 7 p.m. show, which is 60 minutes with a 15-minute intermission.
Tickets for the show range from $20.50 to $25.50 and are available at the box office of the GM Centre, Mary and Athol streets, 1-877-436-8811 or www.generalmotorscentre.com.
