TEG announced the launch of TEG Rockefeller, a new global strategic partnership and joint venture with The Rockefeller Company of New York.
The Rockefeller Company of New York creates family entertainment films, animations and theater shows based on popular children’s books and films. Its subsidiary Rockefeller Productions, founded in 2014, has numerous productions including The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, world number one in children’s shows (with 14 productions on four continents), Paddington Gets in a Jam and the highly anticipated Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Adaptation, which opens in New York in October.
For Sydney-based TEG, the partnership will see its portfolio of experiential family content promoted in the United States and elsewhere by the team at Rockefeller Productions. Rockefeller Productions is led by company co-founder Jonathan Rockefeller, who will lead TEG Rockefeller alongside co-founder Wilson Rockefeller and TEG Live CEO Tim McGregor.
TEG Rockefeller unveiled its first project earlier this week: Pixar Putt, an 18-hole pop-up mini-golf course designed by TEG’s Life Like Touring, which opens in Manhattan in early August with Rockefeller Productions as promoter in the United States. .
TEG Managing Director Geoff Jones said: “The Rockefellers have created a unique company with an excellent track record of delivering brilliant and innovative productions that have delighted families around the world. We welcome Jonathan, Wilson and their team to the TEG family and look forward to continuing their success under the TEG Rockefeller banner. “
Jonathan Rockefeller, Managing Director and Creative Director of Rockefeller Productions, said: “We have always strived to deliver quality entertainment to people all over the world – from Sydney to Shanghai, from London to Los Angeles – by presenting the next generation of spectators to new world. Our work is universal. We are very happy to be working alongside TEG to bring existing great projects like Pixar Putt to a wider audience and start new and wonderful projects together. There is a great future ahead for the two companies working together. “
Wilson Rockefeller, Director of Business Affairs for Rockefeller Productions, added: “Rockefeller was created as the anthesis of an archaic and broken Broadway and Studio system of ‘this is how it’s always been done’. I believe that our successes over a short period have confirmed our innovative approach. With TEG, our new partnership will continue to embrace the new as we progress more and more. At Rockefeller, we couldn’t be more thrilled with this prospect.
TEG, headquartered in Australia, operates out of seven country offices and includes TEG Live, TEG Dainty, TEG MJR, TEG Van Egmond, Laneway Festival, Handsome Tours, Qudos Bank Arena, Ticketek, TEG Analytics, TEG Insights and TEG Digital.
