And it will feature an all-female cast and creative team.

Whether you remember the American Girl Dolls from your childhood or have bought a doll for your own kids, you might be excited to learn the popular toy series will soon be turned into a musical. The Mattel-owned brand will team up with Mills Entertainment to create a touring musical this fall – so yes, you may be able to catch the American Girls musical at a theater near you. And better yet, the musical will tout an all-female cast and creative team.

“We’re thrilled to bring a new touring experience to families across the U.S. and offer this unique live-engagement with the brand,” Katy Dickson, president of American Girl, told Variety about the announcement to launch a musical. “Over the past 30 years, American Girl’s beloved characters have become role models — inspiring millions of girls to think about their own character and how they want to make their mark on the world. We know girls and their families and friends will love seeing these incredible stories come to life in an exciting, new stage production that offers an unwavering belief in the positive power of girlhood.”

Now the only question is if the musical will feature classic dolls like Addy and Samantha or newer additions to the American Girl lineup. And in other toy news, check out this auction featuring rare Supreme and BE@RBRICK gear.
