Daniel Tiger is coming to NJPAC!


The rumors are true: Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood LIVE: King for a Day! is coming to NJPAC this October, and your family is invited. If your little ones have spent any time in front of the television this past year (ahem…), chances are your little one is love with everyone’s favorite tiger and award-winning PBS television series, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. In fact, there’s an even better chance your little ones might be totally obsessed with our four-year-old TV tiger friend. Besides capturing the hearts of preschoolers across the globe, Daniel and crew have been busy providing interactive, learning-based programming by helping little viewers discover common early learning subjects, such as friendship, sharing, cleaning up, and helping others.

On Saturday, October 14, 2017, Daniel’s fans can experience this favorite show like never before, during a live, interactive performance by Daniel and his friends, especially for New Jersey families at New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) in downtown Newark, NJ.
