About The Show
Strawberry Shortcake and her berry best friends made their stage debut in Koba Entertainment’s previously produced live theatrical production, Strawberry Shortcake: Follow Your Berry Own Beat! Fans joined the most spirited red-headed girl, Strawberry Shortcake, and her best friends Orange Blossom, Lemon Meringue, Blueberry Muffin, Raspberry Torte, Plum Pudding and Cherry Jam as they proved that little girls can do berry big things!
But Strawberry Shortcake and the girls weren’t the only ones stepping into the limelight – the exciting musical adventure introduced the happy-go-lucky Huckleberry Pie live-on-stage for the very first time!
Adventure abounded as audiences entered the whimsical land of Berry Bitty City where the whole town was buzzing with anticipation for the Glitzy Glaze Talent Show! Fans sang and danced with Strawberry Shortcake and friends as they prepared for their moment in the spotlight, but not without some misguided mishaps along the way.
This interactive concert experience was full of humour, fun and friendship.
