Today, American Girl announced the first wave of dates for American Girl Live! Tickets will go on sale on May 18, 2018 unless otherwise noted. Before I tell you where it’s coming to, here is the summary for the first time ever: “Experience American Girl in an all-new musical, coming to your town! American Girl Live is a premiere stage production, featuring all original songs and unforgettable experiences. Come along to sleepover camp with some new friends for an exciting summer away from home. As bold tales of bravery and friendship come to life, iconic American Girl characters lend a hand through story and song. Join your favorite American Girl characters and the campers as they follow their hearts, share their dreams and learn the power of friendship.” Oh! I need to tell you about the VIP packages before we get to the dates. Sorry, kids! The regular American Girl Live ticket comes with just admission to the show, but if you get a VIP Experience ticket or a Superstar VIP Experience ticket, you get more! If you get a VIP Experience ticket, you get some of the best seats in the house, as well as access to an exclusive American Girl live-themed post show photo opportunity experience. If you get a Superstar VIP Experience ticket, you get the VIP Experience as well as an American Girl Party Pack and reservations for a Pre-Show party that starts 90 minutes before the show! Now, onto the lucky cities that will be blessed with an American Girl Live show!
