ANNOUNCE THE “TAKING OFF!” NORTH AMERICAN TOUR
MAKING A STOP IN RAHWAY ON OCTOBER 5
WITH TWO PERFORMANCES AT 11:30AM & 3PM

**The Number One Children’s Entertainment Group Introduces a New Cast
Including the First-Ever Female Wiggle, a New TV Show, CD & DVD** 
 


The times are a changin’ and so are The Wiggles. After 21 years of
entertaining children around the globe, The Wiggles will introduce
three new cast members including the first-ever female member,
Emma Watkins. These vibrant new Wiggles will bring the “Taking Off!”
worldwide tour to over thirty-five major cities across North America
between August and October to support their new album of the same
name (available May 7th on Razor & Tie).  The Taking Off! DVD is
slated for release later this summer, and a new television series will
debut on Sprout in the fall.  For a complete list of tour dates please
see the schedule below or go to www.thewiggles.com. 
 
Always educational and entertaining, The Wiggles includes a fun group
of people and characters including Blue, Red, Yellow and Purple
Wiggles with Dorothy the Dinosaur, Captain Feathersword, Wags the
Dog and Henry the Octopus on board for an extra wiggly good time.
"The Wiggles are all about getting kids to eat healthy and moving
through dance. They're known for delighting generations of children
and families who are captivated by their unique brand of music, fun
and learning" said Paul Field, Managing Director of The Wiggles.
Founding member Anthony Field, known as the Blue Wiggle noted,
“The new cast will truly connect with today’s generation.” New
members, Simon Pryce (Red Wiggle), Emma Watkins (Yellow Wiggle)
and Lachlan Gillespie (Purple Wiggle) round out the group of talented
musicians and entertainers. Anthony added, "Their energy and
dedication to the brand is invigorating, and we are especially thrilled
to add our "First Lady" Emma who, literally, has been a fan since she
was a little girl. It was her dream come true."  Paul went on to say,
“Little girls finally have a female Wiggle to look up to. In Australia, the
“Mini-Emma-Army” is becoming a national phenomenon with girls
coming out in droves to each show dressed up as Emma in replica
outfits complete with lots of bows.”
 
This will be the first time that North American audiences will get to
meet the new line-up and hear new music, as well as sing along to
their favorite hits all incorporated into their live show. Taking Off!
features 21 new feet-stomping songs including the catchy soon-to-be
favorite, “Do The Propeller!” as well as "Beep! Beep! Buckle Up!”
"Emma (with the Bow in Her Hair)" and classics such as “Rock-A-Bye
Your Bear” and “Get Ready To Wiggle.”    

The Wiggles have sold more than 23 million DVDs and videos, 7 million
CDs and 8 million books worldwide and touched the lives of millions of
children and families around the world.  Major celebrities such as
Johnny Depp, Robert De Niro, Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Martin
are among their many fans. They have performed in the Macy’s
Thanksgiving Day Parade and on several national TV shows including
“The Today Show”, “The View” and “Fox & Friends.”  “The New York
Times” declared The Wiggles as “the band that rocks the cradle” and
“TIME” mused, “The Wiggles may be singing and dancing their way
into the heart of a toddler near you.” 
 
The Wiggles brand continues to thrive, establishing major new
partnerships with Wicked Cool Toys, video and music partners N Circle
and Razor & Tie and entertainment partners, Sprout TV, SiriusXM
Radio and Corus Entertainment in Canada.
 
The Wiggles will make appearances in select cities including Los
Angeles, Toronto, New York and Philadelphia for promotional visits
May 6th- May 12th before embarking on their North American tour.
