Strawberry Shortcake takes her iconic sweetness to Campbell River for the first time

Strawberry Shortcake has been a part of children’s lives for decades

Get ready for a berry, berry good time with the most spirited red-haired girl, Strawberry Shortcake.

The iconic sweetheart makes her theatrical debut at Campbell River’s Tidemark Theatre on June 11 with an all-new musical production, Strawberry Shortcake: Follow Your Berry Own Beat! Tickets are available at the Tidemark Theatre box office, online at Tidemarktheatre.com or by phone at 1-800-994-0555 ext. 1. Show time is 6:30 p.m.

“Strawberry Shortcake has been a part of children’s lives for decades,” says Koba’s Artistic Director Patti Caplette. “This show is the first time families will be able to see the world’s most famous little girl live on stage.”

Follow along as Strawberry Shortcake and her best friends Orange Blossom, Lemon Meringue, Blueberry Muffin, Raspberry Torte, Plum Pudding and Cherry Jam prove that little girls can do berry big things. But Strawberry Shortcake and the girls won’t be the only ones stepping into the limelight – this exciting musical adventure will introduce the happy-go-lucky Huckleberry Pie live on stage for the very first time.

Adventure abounds as audiences enter the whimsical land of Berry Bitty City where the whole town is buzzing with anticipation for the Glitzy Glaze Talent Show. Sing and dance with Strawberry Shortcake and friends as they each prepare for their moment in the spotlight, but not without some misguided mishaps along the way.
