Licensees Fierylight and Terrapin Station signed for live stage show on both sides of the pond.
Boat Rocker [and Industrial Brothers] have announced that we has signed deals with live entertainment producers Fierylight and Terrapin Station Entertainment to bring a stage version of its preschool show “Dino Ranch” to theaters across North America and U.K. and Eire.
“We absolutely love Dino Ranch’s unique and imaginative mix of dinosaurs and ranchers and can’t wait to get to work with Boat Rocker to recreate its free-range, roping ‘n’ riding, dinosaur-driven fun on stage,” says Richard Lewis, chief executive officer, Fierylight.
“It’s going to make for a really fresh and exciting show, with lots of audience participation that will ensure it’s unlike anything else out there.”
Expected to launch in 2023, Fierylight and Terrapin Station Entertainment – a division of Sony Music Entertainment – are combining forces to produce the show for the U.S. and Canadian markets followed by the U.K. and Eire. The script is being written by Richard and Matt Lewis and the tour will be booked in North America by Mario Tirado, CAA.
“’Dino Ranch’ has all the elements to be as huge a hit on stage as it is on screen – a great cast, with the wonderful characters in the Cassidy family and of course their amazing dino buddies; a fabulous ranch setting; and fast-paced, fun adventure stories to thrill its young audience and most importantly a connection with the audience,” says Jonathan Shank, chief executive officer and tour producer, Terrapin Station Entertainment.
“We look forward to producing an epic interactive experience for the whole family to enjoy.”
Dino Ranch premiered in January on CBC and CBC Gem (Canada) and on Disney Junior and DisneyNOW in the U.S. The series debuted in the U.K. and Australia on Disney+ in April 2021 and has rolled out internationally in other territories across the year.
A second series is currently in production and “Dino Ranch” is due to ride back onto Disney channels in the U.S. and LatAm in 2022 and internationally in 2023.
“We are delighted to partner up with Fierylight and Terrapin Station, two market leaders in producing exciting and engaging live family shows,” says Kate Schlomann, executive vice president, brand management and content marketing, Boat Rocker. “We are working closely with them to create a thrilling experience that reflects the values of ‘Dino Ranch’ – a strong family bond, teamwork, diversity, friendship and of course exciting Dino-driven adventures in the great outdoors – and will allow fans to engage even more closely with their favorite show.”
