American Girl Live
Friday, March 29. 2019 at 7:30 p.m.
This Broadway-style show is set at Camp American Girl, a fictitious sleep-away camp. The story is about the summer adventure of five campers (Rebecca, Nanea, Maryellen, Melody, Julie, and Luciana), their counselor, and their American Girl friends. The experiences the girls have at camp help them to understand that the lessons American Girl characters learn from their experiences are just as relevant today as they were in their time. If a girl in 2018 can carry those lessons in her heart, there’s no challenge or obstacle she can’t overcome!
