MY LITTLE PONY LIVE Will Come to Boston, Philadelphia, and More!
The whimsy and wonder of MY LITTLE PONY is heading to your town in an all-new musical delight for all ages! Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS), a global play and entertainment company, and Mills Entertainment, a leading producer and promoter of branded live entertainment, today announced the inaugural U.S. tour of MY LITTLE PONY LIVE, set to premiere March 2020.
Inspired by the My Little Pony's signature themes of friendship and magic, the original stage production features the beloved pony characters affectionately called "the Mane Six"-Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Rarity, Fluttershy, Applejack and Rainbow Dash. Rounding out the lineup is Spike the Dragon, a fan favorite from the hugely successful MY LITTLE PONY: Friendship is Magic television series, which is currently airing its ninth season.
The fantastical, sensation-filled musical tells an exciting new tale. As the ponies prepare for the blossoming of Ponyville's Rainbow Tree, promising another hundred years of friendship, trouble arises in Equestria. The Mane Six must set out to save the ailing Rainbow Tree with strength, determination, creativity and - of course - the magic of friendship! Come one pony, come all, on this unforgettable journey to Equestria!
