About the Show:

What is a Boondoggle?

Boondoggle: An imaginary friend that is a smiling face, a warm hug, a companion through thick and thin. It’s a faith in yourself, your creativity and your individuality. A Boondoggle never stops believing in you, even if you fail to believe in them.

Story Synopsis:

When imaginary friend Colton the Cowboy finds himself in Boondoggle Central, where all discarded imaginary friends end up, he is determined to find his way back to the real world and his boy Michael. As he enters the giant gates he is greeted by a multitude of imaginary friends and is swiftly encouraged to go to meeting room 102. Meeting room manger Pinkle the Pirate, tells him to take a seat and with the help of Howard the friendly Monster, Jade the nice Witch, Fae the deaf Fairy, Crash the clumsy Ninja, Taisie the Empowered Princess and Carmen the daring Diva he learns what being a Boondoggle is all about. With help from his new friends he set out on a journey to find a way out of Boondoggle Central. When the evil Mr. Leel, head Management and CEO of Boondoggle Central, gets wind of this he devises a plan of his own to use Colton and the Boondoggles to lure more imaginary friends into Boondoggle Central by having his sidekick Mosh follow them. When Pinkle pushes his way past Barb the entrance supervisor and Candy and Sandy her assistants they all learn that the Boondoggle just may have found a way out and that Mosh was with them! Will Colton and the Boondoggles make it back to the real world and if they do will Mr. Leel’s plan work? Will Pinkle win over Mr. Leel and finally become management?

What to Expect

  The Mini-Musicals, Pint Size Plays and Twinkle-Theater shows are audience interactive and have a special section for children to sit on stage or close to the stage, so they can easily get up and sing and dance with the characters. It’s absolutely fine for your child to blow their instrument, talk to the characters or sing and dance with them! The Mini-Musical is designed to help children understand what going to the theater is all about, so there is use of lighting for scene changes and effects. It’s always a good idea to explain to younger children that the lights may go black for a second here and there but they will always come back on. Musical instrument toys (Mini Musicals Only) are given to children when they enter the theater prior to the show. We encourage you and your child to use the instrument or sing during songs! After all shows there is a character meet and greet where your child may get autographs, take pictures and video. La-Tea-Da Tea Times: (Twinkle Tea – Whoop Tea Deux) Twinkle Tea Time is designed to help children ages three to five with social interaction in a fun setting with yummy food and entertainment. All children are served food by characters and are encouraged to interact, sing and dance. Children also will be helped with listen skills and creativity.
