Fresh off the premier and currently in the midst of a 100 plus city tour of the United States, Koba Entertainment and Moose Toys are proud to announce that Shopkins Live! Shop it Up! is coming to Canada in the spring of 2018.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be bringing this production north of the border,” said Executive Producer and Co-Founder of Koba Entertainment, Gilles Paquin. “Canadians can be justifiably proud that this family-friendly, feast for the senses was created here.”
Shopkins Live! Shop It Up! is the first theatrical production based on the wildly successful Shopkins brand created by Australian based Moose Toys. Shopkins is North America’s #1 toy brand and a social media sensation with millions of followers. The new theatrical piece is the work of Canadian based writer, director, and choreographer Patti Caplette who collaborated with the creative team at Moose. Caplette, who is also a Co-Founder of Koba Entertainment has directed most of her company’s successful live productions which now total over 40 in just 14 years!
“Shopkins Live! Shop it Up!is one of our most ambitious works to date,” said Caplette. “With a cast featuring dynamic singers and dancers, we have created a storyline and show that’s perfect for families,” she added. ”We took the toys off the shelf, worked with Moose and brought these beloved characters to life.”
Shopkins Live! Shop It Up! 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 also a huge part of the live show. The show runs approximately 90 minutes including a 15-minute intermission. The Canadian portion of the Shopkins Live! Shop it Up! tour is represented by Paquin Artists Agency.
Tickets are priced at $100.00, $59.50, $42.50 and $26.50.
