3 min read

BABY SHARK LIVE!, the brand-new, fully immersive concert experience, will play three performances at D.C.’s National Theatre from June 5-7, 2020. The show joins the venue’s recordbreaking 2019-2020 Broadway at the National lineup, now totaling an unprecedented 17 productions over the course of the season.

Tickets for BABY SHARK LIVE! will go on sale tomorrow, Tuesday, October 29 at 2pm. At that time, tickets may be purchased at TheNationalDC.com, by calling 1-800-514-3849, or in person at the National Theatre Box Office (open Monday-Friday from 12pm-6pm and two hours prior to every performance). The National Theatre is located at 1321 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in downtown Washington, D.C.

The viral song and dance sensation first came into Nationals Park four months ago when Outfielder Gerardo Parra made it his walk-up song. “Baby Shark” has now become an unofficial anthem for the Washington Nationals’ 2019 season. The announcement of BABY SHARK LIVE! comes as the Washington Nationals travel to Houston, Texas to play in Tuesday’s Game 6 of the 2019 World Series.

BABY SHARK LIVE! is based on Pinkfong’s viral earworm and global dance phenomenon, “Baby Shark.” Fans of all ages will delight as Baby Shark joins up with his friend Pinkfong to take an adventure into the sea, singing and dancing through new and classic songs including “Five Little Monkeys,” “Wheels on the Bus,” “Jungle Boogie,” “Monkey Banana Dance,” and of course, “Baby Shark!”

“Baby Shark,” Pinkfong’s global hit song about a family of sharks, has climbed the charts and connected with fans around the globe. After entering the Billboard Hot 100 at #32, the song has had a 17-week streak in the Top 50 while topping the Kids Digital Song Sales Chart. The “Baby Shark” dance video has over 3.7 billion views, making it the 5th most viewed video in the history of YouTube.

BABY SHARK LIVE! Is currently playing to excited audiences in theaters across the country. The fall tour leg began in Spartanburg, SC and will continue on to play markets including New York, Boston and Chicago before wrapping on Sunday, November 10 in Philadelphia. Additional shows will be announced at a future date. BABY SHARK LIVE! is slated to visit more than 100 U.S. and Canadian markets through 2020. For more information, visit babysharklive.com.
