Barney in new ‘Eid in Dubai’ show
Dubai, September 12, 2009
Barney, the popular fun-loving purple dinosaur cartoon character, will debut in a new production during an exclusive upcoming Eid entertainment programme in Dubai.
‘Eid in Dubai’ 2009 – Eid Al Fitr with the Barney Let’s Imagine Show and Experience will be staged for five days at the Airport Expo Dubai starting from the first day of Eid Al Fitr with two performances a day, at 4 pm and 7 pm.
The show will feature a stage performance by Barney, BJ, Baby Bop, and Barney’s cousin Riff. The musical involves a stunning stage set-up and combines multimedia imagery, live actors and giant inflatable prop ups.
The Dubai Shopping Festival Office, organisers of ‘Eid in Dubai’, stated that the Barney show in the inaugural edition of ‘Eid in Dubai’ in 2008 was staged to sell out crowds and following that success, this year’s show was a new production that would make its Middle East debut in Dubai this Eid Al Fitr.
During the programme, an entire area at Airport Expo Dubai will be dedicated to Barney where children can find Barney merchandise, a colouring area, a Barney reading zone, a puzzle area, and also meet Barney and pose for photographs.
The initiative is aimed at enhancing the experience Barney enthusiasts have during ‘Eid in Dubai’.
With a cast of twelve performers involving dance performances and songs, the show is extremely interactive and will appeal to children and parents alike.
Tickets to the show are priced at Dh50 ($13.60), 100, and 150. – TradeArabia News Service
