TCG Entertainment and Endemol Shine North America are reteaming for a second MasterChef Junior Live! tour, which will kick off in 2020 with stops in more than 40 new markets.
The extended seven-week tour will launch in Rochester, New York on March 3, before traveling to such cities as Boston, Brooklyn, Washington, D.C., Detroit, Chicago, Denver and more. Tickets for the new dates go on sale on October 25, and can be purchased at MasterChefJuniorLive.com. The original 16-stop tour was attended by packed audiences this fall.
The family-friendly show features head-to-head cooking demonstrations and fun challenges with past MasterChef Junior contestants. A limited number of VIP packages will be available in all markets and will include cast meet-and-greets, Q&A sessions, a signed show poster, photos and more. The cast for the second MasterChef Junior Live! tour will be announced at a later date.
MasterChef Junior is slated to return for an eighth season on FOX, featuring Gordon Ramsay, Aarón Sánchez and new judge Daphne Oz.
Stephen Cook, president of TCG Entertainment and producer of MasterChef Junior Live!, said: “TCG is thrilled to continue to bring the fun of MasterChef Junior Live! to audiences in 2020. The stage show brings great moments from the TV series to a live setting. Families will enjoy watching and participating in the show as much as we have enjoyed creating it.”
