Majid Al Futtaim brings first-ever licensed Tom & Jerry show to the region with larger than life cheese maze and live musical show
06 Jan, 2015
Keeping true to its promise in creating great moments for everyone, every day, Majid Al Futtaim, the pioneer in retail and shopping in the Middle East and North Africa, is bringing another set of iconic characters in the persona of Tom & Jerry to the Middle East for the first time. Entertaining live performances will be staged for families at City Centre Mirdif starting tomorrow, Jan 7th until the 27th before the duo goes to City Centre Deira on Jan 18th to 27th. City Centre Mirdif will also bring the feuding pair to life with a larger than life cheese maze to experience the Tom & Jerry chase on Jan 7th to 27th.
Tom & Jerry is an animated series of short films popularized in the 40s featuring the rivalry between the characters done in slapstick comedy. Families are encouraged to bring their children to watch a comedic show then steer Jerry away from Tom by navigating the maze to hand the cheese at the finish line. Photo opportunities with the characters will also be available.
Hussain Moosa, Associate Director for Majid Al Futtaim Properties, said: “Majid Al Futtaim’s commitment to providing families with many great moments beyond shopping is demonstrated with great initiatives that we have brought to the community. To keep the momentum, we will start 2015 with the first-ever licensed show of Tom & Jerry brought to the Middle East. We are optimistic that a show that has made a mark in most of our childhood memories will bring the same engaging effect to our new generation.”
A part of Majid Al Futtaim’s 20th Dubai Shopping Festival celebration, the stage show is on at 4:30pm, 6:30pm and 9:30pm for both malls. To participate at the Tom & Jerry chase inside City Centre Mirdif, mall visitors who shop for a minimum of AED 399 at any store within the mall can enter the cheese maze.
