PJ Masks Live! Time to be a Hero brings its first ever theatrical production to the Fox Theatre in Atlanta on Saturday, October 21 at 5 p.m.
The production follows the thrilling nighttime adventures of the three young friends who transform into their dynamic alter egos, Catboy, Owlette, Gekko and the Baddies. The team will delight fans of all ages with live performances featuring world class production, familiar and original music, acrobatics and immersive activity.
We are excited to receive complementary tickets to the show in exchange for this coverage. My almost 4 year old loves Catboy so he’s thrilled to watch this live performance!
PJ Masks Live! Interview with Owlette
In preparation for the show, I had a chance to interview Caitlin Hornik who plays Owlette. Here’s what she had to say about PJ Masks Live!
Do you need dancing experience to be in the show?
Having prior dance experience is definitely helpful with this show. The majority of the cast has a background in dance or movement of some kind. As far as the dancing itself, it’s not super technique-based, but having ballet and jazz training lends itself well to the hip-hop style in terms of how well we are able to control the movement! The show itself is very physical, so there is definitely a degree of athleticism required as well.
Are there alternates for each character in the show, or is it the same cast at each performance?
It is the same cast at each performance. We do have two female understudies and a male swing who cover all of the principal and ensemble tracks in the show, should someone fall ill or become injured.
Were you familiar with the TV show prior to becoming a cast member?
I was vaguely familiar– I had definitely heard of the show. I did a ton of research prior to the audition process, and then again upon learning that I’d be joining the company. I think I’ve seen almost every episode from Season One now!
How much practice do you do between shows, or before the tour began?
Our rehearsal process included two weeks of learning the music and choreography in NYC, followed by another nine or ten days of tech rehearsals where the show really started to come alive. Since the show has opened, we rehearse 1-2 times per week to maintain the quality of the choreography, blocking, and music. We also have understudy rehearsals to ensure that those actors are ready to step in, should the opportunity arise.
