The brand-new musical American Girl Live will complete the 2018-19 Starlight Indoors season, playing April 23-28 in Cohen Community Stage House. Brought to life by an incredible, all-female creative team, American Girl Live features original songs and unforgettable experiences, celebrating the power of girls and the strength of friendship.
In American Girl Live, audiences join five spunky campers and their fearless counselor at Camp American Girl, an overnight camp in the North Woods. Overcoming fears and obstacles along the way to having the summer of their lives, these brave campers rely on wisdom and advice delivered by Rebecca, Maryellen, Julie, Nanea, Luciana, and Melody—the beloved American Girl dolls they’ve brought along to camp—who inspire audiences in surprising and delightful musical numbers, each reflecting their historical eras. Empowered by the stories and conviction of their American Girls, the campers learn that they can overcome anything and achieve their dreams, so long as they stay true to themselves and support one another!
“American Girl is an iconic brand with a timeless, inspiring message,” Caroline Gibel, director of indoor programming, said. “I’m thrilled to present this brand-new, theatrical experience for both audiences who grew up with these stories and new audiences alike.”
American Girl Live is a wonderful evening out for families and children of all ages. The show is 90 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission, making it perfect for first-time theatre-goers and younger patrons. Patrons can also enhance their experience with a VIP ticket, which includes an American Girl Live show poster and the best seats in the house. After the show, VIP ticketholders are invited to join the fun at three American Girl Live themed photo opportunities featuring props and characters from the show.
