The Kratt brothers take their PBS show on the road for a two-month cross-country trip filled with creature powers, critters and fun. “Wild Kratts LIVE 2.0 – Activate Creature Power!” opens in Eugene, Ore., and includes Seattle, Hollywood, Chicago and St. Louis among its destinations.

You may not be familiar with “Wild Kratts” and the two brothers behind the program, but it’s a sure bet your kids know all about the show.  Created by Martin and Chris Kratt, the Emmy-nominated program mixes live action with animation to depict the brothers exploring wondrous lands filled with exotic animals.

How does this translate to the stage?  The Kratt Brothers appear live while the Wild Kratts team are seen on-screen as animated characters at their Tortuga HQ.

And it goes without saying that the brothers will activate several new “creature powers” to amaze the fans.

“We are so excited to introducer our new live stage show and meet our fellow ‘creature adventurers’ in cities across the U.S. this fall,” Chris Kratt said in a statement.  “‘Wild Kratts Live 2.0’is perfect for explorers of all ages.  It features all the excitement and interactive elements that ‘Wild Kratts’ fans love, plus awesome new Kratt Brothers twists and turns to keep them on the edge of their seats.”

Previous Wild Kratt tours have done very well at the box office and the production has sold out shows in markets like Austin, Atlanta, Nashville and Boston.  Last month the Kratt  brothers took the show to the Palace Theatre where 2,484 fans purchased tickets and the gross reached $109,362.

Many shows are on sale now.  Keep checking Pollstar’s Wild Kratts page for updates.
