[more+]

In it’s first-ever U.S. tour, the beloved My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic characters will take the stage in their all new musical debut, My Little Pony Live. Inspired by the brand’s signature themes of friendship and magic, the original production features popular pony friends 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!

My Little Pony Live is a creative collaboration between Hasbro, Inc. and Mills Entertainment.  The original stage production was developed by writer and lyricist, Jeremy Desmon (Disney’s Rockin’ Ever After, Nick Jr.’s Move To The Music!, Nancy Drew), composer, Jeff Thomson (Jawbreaker, Pump Up The Volume, Nancy Drew), and director, Jenn Rapp (Broadway’s The Illusionists, Disney’s D Cappella, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Live).

Everypony needs a ticket, regardless of age.

In it’s first-ever U.S. tour, the beloved My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic characters will take the stage in their all new musical debut, My Little Pony Live. Inspired by the brand’s signature themes of friendship and magic, the original production features popular pony friends 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!

My Little Pony Live is a creative collaboration between Hasbro, Inc. and Mills Entertainment.  The original stage production was developed by writer and lyricist, Jeremy Desmon (Disney’s Rockin’ Ever After, Nick Jr.’s Move To The Music!, Nancy Drew), composer, Jeff Thomson (Jawbreaker, Pump Up The Volume, Nancy Drew), and director, Jenn Rapp (Broadway’s The Illusionists, Disney’s D Cappella, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood Live).

Everypony needs a ticket, regardless of age.
