Baby Shark Live! coming to Louisville

NEW ORLEANS (NOLA WEEKEND) - Baby Shark, the viral earworm and global dance phenomenon, will get the holiday treatment this season.

“Baby Shark Live!: The Christmas Show” will splash across North America for a holiday tour that includes a special stop in New Orleans at the Mahalia Jackson Theater on Nov. 25.

The Pinkfong Company and Round Room Live announced this limited-run show will include holiday classics, an appearance from Santa Claus and more family fun.

During the experience, fans of all ages will join Baby Shark and friends for exciting adventures into the jungle and under the sea to explore shapes, colors and numbers. The show will also feature hit songs, including “Baby Shark,” “Five Little Monkeys,” “Wheels On The Bus,” and “Monkey Banana Dance,” as well as Holiday classics such as “Jingle Bells” and “We Wish You A Merry Christmas,” producers said in a release.

“We’re excited for the incredible Christmas spirit of Baby Shark Live!: The Christmas Show to be on stages across the country this year,” Stephen Shaw, tour producer and co-president of Round Room Live, said in a release. “We’re thrilled to bring Baby Shark and Santa to families this Holiday season.”

“Baby Shark,” the Pinkfong Company’s global hit song about a family of sharks, has climbed the charts and connected with fans around the globe, becoming the only RIAA Diamond-certified children’s single.

The “Baby Shark Dance” music video became the first-ever video to hit 10 billion views on YouTube, making it the most viewed video in the history of YouTube. Nickelodeon is now airing “Baby Shark’s Big Show!,” a preschool television series starring the mega-popular Baby Shark.
