Featuring outrageous choreography, elaborate sets, flawless costumes and brand-new music, the show will be a concert come dance party for the whole family to enjoy. It’s also set to be the first ever family show in the UK to use holograms…or should we say holoGLAMS. The show follows Mallory as she gets ready for the L.O.L. Surprise! LIVE VIP Party but doesn’t know what to wear – a predicament most of us have found ourselves in at one time or another! However, the L.O.L. Surprise! Dolls are there to help her realise – through show stopping numbers that will have families on their feet and dancing - that B.B.s don’t fit into just one box and all that matters is being you and having fun. Along the way Mallory and the dolls are joined by many of their friends you’ll know all too well, as well as dancing, singing life size holograms of L.O.L. Surprise! Remix O.M.G. Fashion Dolls! Kitty K, Lonestar, Pop B.B. and Honeylicious, leaving the audience thrilled from start of finish. You’ll be invited to Get Up and Dance and sing along to L.O.L.’s newest hits with your fashionable BFFs and all their fellow B.B.s in this concert style ride made for the entire family!
