Lights-up to reveal a grassy area in Adventure Bay. There are trees and hills. We can see the Lookout in the distance. 

Ryder comes riding in on his skateboard and looks out at the audience. 


Whoa! There are A LOT of visitors in Adventure Bay today. 

Ryder gasps with a realization. 


Hold on a minute! Today is the day that Mayor Goodway is putting on a show. 

Ryder steps towards the audience.


Are you all here for "The Big Adventure Bay Show"?

The audience shout yes. 

Ryder gives a little jump and punches the air in excitement. 


Awesome! Well welcome to Adventure Bay. I'm Ryder...

Ryder walks across the stage, waving and high-fiving (if possible) the audience. The audience wave and high-five back.


Hi everyone!

Ryder stands centre stage. 


You know, The Big Adventure Bay Show is going to be amazing. There's going to be singing, and dancing, and some pups you know too. Do you know what pups I mean?  

The audience respond. Ryder nods.


Yeah! The PAW Patrol!
