OTTAWA, February 28, 2012 — Kid Koala's popular and unique Space Cadet Headphone Tour project will be in Ottawa for the first time this Spring at the Canada Aviation and Space Museum.

Part music, part storytelling, Kid Koala invites you into the world of the Space Cadet graphic novel in a show you will never forget. Bring the entire family, it's an all ages event!

Kid Koala's Space Cadet Headphone Tour will be presented on six occasions over three days at the Canada Space and Aviation Museum on April 13-15. Tickets will go on sale on on March 1st. For more details regarding the shows' schedule, please visit:
