The journey begins when the Trolls’ Hug Time is unexpectedly put at risk. Knowing the only way to save it is by doing what the Trolls do best, Poppy hosts a toe-tapping, Trolls-tastic show. Poppy, Branch, Cooper, Cloud Guy, Satin and Chenille, Smidge, Guy Diamond, Fuzzbert, Biggie, and Mr. Dinkles invite kids into the colorful world of Troll Village for this interactive performance only the Trolls can create.

The world of the Trolls comes alive in this totally interactive, story-rich musical celebration of everything the Trolls love – singing, dancing, rainbows, glitter, and plenty of hugs. The extravaganza utilizes the latest in scenic projection, puppetry, media technology, and features a host of special effects and interactive surprises. Trolls Live includes two acts with an intermission and will enchant both children and adults with its popular Trolls show-stopping songs, as well as introduce audiences to all-new electrifying Trolls music and choreography.

Last year, Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake returned to their film roles of Poppy and Branch in “Trolls World Tour,” an all-star sequel to DreamWorks Animation’s 2016 musical hit.
