L.O.L. Surprise! Toy Brand to Embark on 100-City Tour


LOL Surprise Dolls presented by MGA Entertainment.

A live concert series based on the popular doll brand will be produced by Jonathan Shank.

Veteran family producer Jonathan Shank has a new show he plans to take on the road this fall: L.O.L. Surprise! Live - Calling All B.B.’s, a live action production based on the popular toy series.

The tour is one of the first productions for Terrapin Productions, Shank's new company after ending his 10-year run with Red Light Management in October. Dates have not yet been announced.

Shank had previously worked on family shows for Disney Jr. Dance Party and PJ Masks. L.O.L. Surprise! Live features characters like Lady Diva, Royal Bee, Neonlicious and Swag in a high-energy interactive touring show with original music, choreography and special effects and will visit more than 100 markets.

The script for the show will be penned by creative director Amy Tinkham.

“We’re excited to produce the first-ever L.O.L. Surprise! Live show and give fans and families who have been eagerly awaiting the return of live events a chance to come inside the L.O.L. world and play alongside their favorite characters,” said Shank in a statement. “Our highest priority is the safety and comfort of our fans. The show is going to be a must see experience for L.O.L. fans of all ages with tons of incredible music, dancing, and extra OMG surprises.”

L.O.L. Surprise! Live will be using ticketing company's Lyte’s Priority Reservation system to reserve a spot to attend the show in their preferred city.

The reservation systems lets "fans to 'set and forget' their ticket-buying preferences. Instead of chasing down tickets, we bring the tickets to them," explains Lyte’s founder and chief executive Ant Taylor.

When the show specifics are announced and tickets become available, those who have already made reservations will be among the first to be given access to tickets. Should they not be able to attend the show, fans will have the flexibility to return or exchange tickets.
