The theatrical production is based on the hit CGI-animated preschool television show, Strawberry Shortcake’s Berry Bitty Adventure.
Children in attendance get to experience the good times first hand, as the show is described as an interactive concert full of humour, fun, and friendship.
The all-new musical production is being put on by Koba Entertainment, and is just one of the company’s various successful productions. Last year, Koba’s The Backyardigans Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens hit the stage of the Cultural Centre.
Strawberry Shortcake’s musical production brings together an award winning team, led by Koba’s artistic director Patti Caplette. The show will feature new songs co-written by Lorelei Bachman and her father, Randy Bachman (The Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive), while also including songs from the hit TV show.
Caplette says the show can be a special night for fans, who usually only get to see the characters through a screen.
"Strawberry Shortcake has been a part of children’s lives for decades. This show is the first time families will be able to see the world’s most famous little girl live on stage."
Along with a top notch performance, the show is also a spectacle on the eyes of the audience, as scenic design and productions are created by F & D Scene Changes Ltd., whose previous work includes creating sets for Broadway shows such as Wicked, Mary Poppins and Les Miserables.
Shortcake makes her Energetic City debut on May 28, and tickets are now available for purchase through the North Peace Cultural Centre’s box office, online or by calling 1-877-785-1992.
