“American Girl Live” at Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown

By Taylor Smith 

Iconic American Girl characters come to life on Monday, February 18

Sleepover camp is in session at American Girl Live, a 90-minute musical at the Mayo Performing Arts Center, perfect for kids ages 5 and up. Five spunky campers will face various feats of growing pains and bravery as they turn to their favorite American Girl characters for advice. Each character —inspired by a different period of history — will share stories of conviction, demonstrating the strength of friendship. 

Families will delight in the songs depicting a summer of fun, challenges, and life-changing experiences in the North Woods. 

Audience members are encouraged to bring their American Girl doll to the show. While no backstage tours are given as a part of the experience, a limited number of VIP packages are available for a premium American Girl Live experience. Visit the VIP section of the tour website at http://americangirllive.com/#vip for more information. 

So, what can viewers expect from this female-driven show?

In addition to compelling characters and non-stop music, American Girl Live creates a sense of community that will be felt by all. 

“American Girl encourages girls to face their fears, overcome obstacles, and learn from their mistakes by responding with optimism and resilience. What a perfect analogy for what we do in theater! We work in real time. Once the curtain rises, there is no starting over, no matter what happens. If mistakes arise or things don’t go according to plan, we need to adapt and stay positive,” says Producer Simone Gianfrancesco. 

Tickets are $29-79
