St. Paul, MN (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
Popular Twin Cities children’s television program, “The Choo Choo Bob Show,” is celebrating its first anniversary on Channel 45 in the Twin Cities with new episodes and a summer of live appearances.
Parents and kids will have the opportunity to hop aboard the Choo Choo train at a number of venues across the Twin Cities this summer, including at the Minnesota State Fair.
Part “Shining Time Station,” part “Sesame Street,” “The Choo Choo Bob Show” pairs creative locomotive storytelling with musical sing-alongs from guest acts such as Lucy Michelle & the Velvet Lapelles, The New Standards, Haley Bonar and The Roe Family Band (catch episodes and music videos on the "Choo Choo Bob Show!" YouTube channel).
“The Choo Choo Bob Show” has emerged as a refreshing and popular alternative to its mass media counterparts, allowing Minneapolis-St. Paul families to enjoy Choo Choo Bob’s antics on television (starting June 1, the show will move timeslots, airing Saturdays at 2:30 p.m. on channel 45) or enjoy some train time in person at the flagship Choo Choo Bob Train Store in St. Paul.
“Who wouldn’t want my job? I get to create this fun show, share my passion for trains and work with these talented actors and musicians in the process,” says Bob Medcraft, producer, The Choo Choo Bob Show. “The success we’ve experienced this year has a lot to do with our community of fans — they’re the best.”
Celebration of the show’s one-year anniversary will kick-off with a live performance at 10 a.m. (doors open at 9:30) on Saturday, June 1 at the Riverview Theater, followed by a performance at Grand Old Day in St. Paul on Sunday, June 2 at 12:30 p.m. and a visit from Engineer Paul and Engineer Emily at the Midtown Global Market’s Wee Wednesdays on June 5 at 10:30 a.m.
The fun will continue into July, when the whole train-loving gang makes an appearance at the Maetzold Amphitheater at Centennial Lakes in Edina on Thursday, July 25.
In August, “The Choo Choo Bob Show” will hit the rails once more, stopping at the Washington County Fair in Lake Elmo for three performances and the Roseville Library on Tuesday, Aug.13 at 1:30 p.m.
Finally, “The Choo Choo Bob Show” will host three performances each day on Friday, Aug. 30 and Saturday, Aug. 31, at the Minnesota State Fair. Mark your calendar for 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 3:00 p.m. shows each of those days.
