“As we continue to build on the success and momentum of Ranger Rob we couldn’t be more excited to work with Round Room to deliver the sense of exploration and wonder of the series to the stage,” said Pam Westman, head, Nelvana Enterprises.

“Our young fans continually look for ways to experience their favourite characters beyond the television screen, and we’re eager to bring the excitement of Big Sky Park to life through this new on-stage adventure.” 

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Nelvana to bring a live version of Ranger Rob to the stage,” said Stephen Shaw, founder and CEO, Round Room Presents.

“Ranger Rob and the spirited themes of exploration, curiosity, and discovery lend themselves perfectly to a live experience and we can’t wait to bring these stories to life in a new way for kids everywhere."
