Based on YouTube sensation and international toy phenomenon created in Australia by Moose Toys, “Shopkins Live! Shop It Up!” immerses audiences in the world of Shopville through custom-designed theatrical costumes, creative onstage characters and state-of-the-art video and set design. Original music, song, dance and interactive sing-a-longs are a huge part of the live show, with performances from Shoppies Jessicake, Bubbleisha, Peppa-Mint, Rainbow Kate, Cocolette, Polli Polish and more.

“We’re so thrilled to see all the besties in attendance with ear-to-ear smiles,” said Gilles Paquin, the president and CEO of Koba Entertainment and executive producer of the show. “They get so enthralled by the vibrant, colorful set and costumes, and soon enough the catchy songs will have BFFs singing along and dancing in their seats.”

Since its launch in 2014, the Shopkins brand continues to be a hot-ticket item for children worldwide, created by the family-run business Moose Toys. The pint-sized Shoppies dolls consistently rank as the No. 1 kids toy in the U.S. The first-ever Shopkins movie, “Shopkins Chef Club,” was released last year by Universal Pictures Home Entertainment, and numerous dedicated apps continue to expand the brand’s ever-growing world.

“Shopkins Live! Shop It Up!” runs for approximately 90 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission. The show will tour more than 115 North American cities through April 2018. For more information on pre-sale offers, on-sale dates and North American tour dates, visit http://www.shopkinslive.com.
