Dora the Explorer Live! is based on the No. 1 preschool show on commercial television, "Dora the Explorer." The popular Dora is a seven-year-old Latina heroine, whose adventures take place in an imaginative, tropical world filled with jungles, beaches and rainforests. Dora explores her world just as preschoolers do everyday, and both the TV and stage shows are designed to actively engage audiences using a variety of learning techniques. Dora and her best friend Boots invite the audience to join them in Search For the City of Lost Toys. Each step of their journey consists of a problem or puzzle that Dora and the audience must solve in order to move on to the next challenge. Dora is proudly bilingual and uses her knowledge of English and Spanish to communicate with her friends, overcome obstacles and reach her goals. Dora teaches Spanish words and phrases to the audience and then asks them to use them to solve a problem and forge ahead.
