Do you like Paw Patrol? Well, we were lucky enough to interview one of the performers from PAW Patrol Live! “Heroes Unite”. Ben Butters plays PAW Patrol character Chase in the live performance. Let’s get to know Ben and learn more about how he becomes Chase to bring this show to kids all over the country!
CHIRP: What’s the best part about your job?
BEN: I get to come to work and do what I love. I especially love performing for the kids who might be at the theatre for the very first time!
CHIRP: Who’s your favourite PAW Patrol character?
BEN: I love Chase. He is the leader of the PAW Patrol and the best police pup around. He’s kind, helpful, friendly, and always wants to do his best to protect people and keep them safe. Like he says, he’s always “on the case!”
CHIRP: How did you get started in this job?
BEN: I am an actor and work onstage to tell stories and entertain people all over the country. I went to college to study musical theatre, where I learned how to sing, dance, and act, as well as how to turn those skills into a career. After graduating, I began auditioning for lots of different acting jobs. PAW Patrol Live! was auditioning for a new show. I spent months trying out for lots of different people, and I got the job! I’m so happy to be here!
CHIRP: What part of this PAW Patrol show do kids usually like best?
BEN: Towards the end of the show, DJ Rubble throws a massive dance party! The lights go dim, disco balls shine across the theatre, and everyone in the audience gets to show off their best dance moves.
