The holidays will be extra special for kids this year as well-loved character Hello Kitty comes to Manila to spend the Christmas in the Philippines and mount Hello Kitty Live – Fashion & Friends.
Produced by Royale Chimes Concerts and Events Inc. and Zen Tiger Live, Hello Kitty – Fashion & Friends will have a two-week run—a total of 16 shows—at the Meralco Theater from December 20 to January 1, 2017.
Audiences will be given the chance to enter the world of Hello Kitty as the interactive show takes to the stage the adventures and continuing evolution of her persona.
Hello Kitty is a young girl who lives in London full of dreams and ambition for her future. Faced with multiple challenges, she is lucky to have the support of her twin sister Mimmy, best friend My Melody and boyfriend Dear Daniel as she takes on the opportunities that can change her life forever.
Making the story interesting further are troublemaker Bad Badtz-Maru and easygoing Pom Pom Purin.
The values on friendship, respect, kindness, hard work, talent and a passion for creativity definitely make mom and dad consider this show as something that could educate their children aside from making them happy during the Yuletide season.
Hello Kitty Live features fantastic fashion and costumes designed by Japanese-inspired lifestyle brand Tokidoki. Lively and pop music which includes songs from Clean Bandit, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Flo Rida, Echosmith and Bruno Mars, among others add to the fun of this production.
Comprising the creative team are Adam Stafford, director and actor of dozens of shows and West End musicals such as the Life of Galileo; Richard Lewis, creative director of a long list of successful productions including Peppa Pig Live and Lazy Town Live; Del Mak, choreographer of TV show Got To Dance and Lorenzo Ceccoti one of the most acclaimed upcoming visual artists on the digital scene, director of The Dark Side Of The Sun and creator of the visual novel Golem.
Together they have created a fun-packed show, a whole new experience where the characters on stage and the animations on a mega HD screen interact with the public as the story unfolds.
During its Manila run, the audience will also get a chance to have their photos taken with the cast after the show upon availing of the “meet and greet” pass on a first-come, first-served basis. Inquiries can be made via Ticketworld outlets (www.ticketworld.com.ph).
