"Go, Diego, Go Live! The Great Jaguar Rescue" is scheduled for 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. June 5 in the Bill Heard Theatre, RiverCenter for the Performing Arts, 900 Broadway.
The live-action stage show is about Diego, his sister Alicia and cousin Dora, who go on a mission to get Baby Jaguar's growl back from the Bobos.
Every child in the audience will receive a jaguar mask to help on this interactive adventure to rescue animals, go through the rainforest and pass through a giant waterfall to get to the Animal Carnivale.
This show is inspired by the environment and animals of Latin America, and features the familiar songs and characters from the Nick Jr. television show.
The "Go, Diego, Go!" series airs at 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Monday-Friday on Nick Jr. The show spun off from the "Dora the Explorer" show in 2005.
In every episode, Diego gets a call asking for his help at his Animal Rescue Center in the rainforest. With high-tech gadgets, his friends and viewers at home, he finds the animal in trouble.
Both Diego and Alicia are bilingual and are accompanied by Baby Jaguar.
Actor Jesse Carrion plays Diego. He has a bachelor's degree in acting from the UCLA Theater and Film Department. He was on the 2007 national tour of "Rent" and was in the original production of "The Lockdown Club" in Los Angeles.
