In a partnership facilitated by Angry Birds' global licensing agency IMG, the interactive touring "Angry Birds" stage show will feature characters from the movies, "Red," "Silver" and "Leonard" as they embark on a misadventure in a new world rife with challenging situations. With gameplay elements integrated into the live production, the audience will help dictate the show's outcome.   

"'Angry Birds' Live: The Slingshot Adventure is a landmark production and interactive theatrical experience that allows the audience to participate and impact the story's outcome in a way that has never been done before," says Mark Manuel, chief executive officer, Kilburn Live. "We are going to push the boundaries of live entertainment once again and allow the audience to catapult objects onto the stage during the performance that will impact the outcome of the show. It's going to be a lot of fun."  

Kilburn and Rovio secured the writing service of veteran Hollywood screenwriters James Johnston and Bennet Yellin, who have written for films such as "Dumb and Dumber" and "Stuck on You."
