Collectible toy-inspired show will visit more than 75 U.S. cities, beginning later this year.
Moose Toys and Koba Entertainment have joined forces to debut the first live theatrical production based on the collectible toy brand Shopkins.
The new show, titled “Shopkins Live,” will feature the Shoppies and Shopkins characters in an all-new storyline. It will also include original pop music and video highlights as Jessicake, Bubbleisha, Peppa-Mint and their friends prepare for Shopville’s annual Funtastic Food and Fashion Fair.
“Shopkins is literally on every child’s wish list,” says Gilles Paquin, president and chief executive officer, Koba Entertainment. “Koba Entertainment’s partnership with an innovative and leading toy manufacturer like Moose Toys allows us to bring one of the most successful toy brands in history to life on stage.”
The 90-minute show will premiere in Buffalo, N.Y. and will visit more than 75 U.S. cities, including Boston, Mass.; Pittsburgh, Penn.; Atlanta, Ga.; Jacksonville, Fla.; Los Angeles, Calif.; Chicago, Ill.; and Grand Rapids, Mich., among many others.
“We are thrilled to have Koba Entertainment presenting our first-ever live theatrical show for Shopkins,” says Nicole Hardiman, senior licensing manager, Moose Toys. “This will be a fantastic event featuring the Shopkins and Shoppies in an amazing adventure that our North American fans can experience.”
“Shopkins Live” will kick off Sept. 14, with tickets going on sale next Friday, April 28.
