A series of photos released today give Shopkins and Shoppies fans a sneak peek into the first-ever live theatrical production based on the phenomenally successful pint-sized Shopkins toy brand. Shopkins Live! Shop It Up! will visit more than 110 theatres on its North American tour beginning this September and coming to The Pavilion Indoor Theater at Irving Music Factory on October 19th. Tickets are on-sale now at www.shopkinslive.com and can be purchased at Ticketmaster.com.
The photos offer a glimpse into the world of Shopkins Live! Shop It Up! which immerses audiences in the world of Shopville using custom-designed theatrical costumes, creative onstage characters, state-of-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 thrilled to share a first look at the Shoppies characters coming to life,” says director, Patti Caplette. “Shopkins fans have a lot to look forward to once our show hits the road this Fall.”

Shop It Up! features the fun and fashionable Shoppies, joined by the Shopkins – the grocery store-themed mini collectable toys – Apple Blossom, Strawberry Kiss, Lippy Lips, Kooky Cookie, Poppy Corn, Slick Breadstick and Shady Diva.
