Gazette Premium Content Disney Junior Live! comes to the Pikes Peak Center

By Jen Mulson Updated: January 30, 2014 at 9:12 am

Noon and 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 2, and 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3, Pikes Peak Center, 190 S. Cascade Ave., $27-$62; 520-7469, ticketswest.com

Combine two Disney Junior TV series and the result is a stage show created for kids.

"Disney Junior Live! Pirate & Princess Adventure" comes to the Pikes Peak Center on Sunday and Monday. The first half of the show follows the adventures of "Sofia the First," from the same-named TV show, as Sofia and her family prepare for a royal celebration. The second half of the show is devoted to "Jake and the Never Land Pirates," from the same-named TV show, in which Jake, his friends and Peter Pan take on Captain Hook to find hidden treasure.

Doc McStuffins, a new Disney Junior TV series character, will hold a pre-show clinic. She's a 6-year-old girl who fixes toys and dolls.

The show has been on the road for six months, and actor Nicholas Bouthillette has been along for the whole ride. The 28-year-old from Oxford, Mass. stars as Prince James in the first half and Hal, a silly pirate, in the second. It's his fourth touring Disney show.

"It's a great first experience for kids," Bouthillette says. "They're not just sitting back in seats. We want them to dress up as their favorite characters, and shout back answers to characters on stage. It's great for them to see it live on stage, and not just behind a TV screen."
