Pop House Productions and the Astrid Lindgren Company are celebrating Pippi Longstocking’s 75th anniversary in the summer of 2020 with a fun, musical circus show in collaboration with Cirkus Cirkör – PIPPI AT CIRKUS. Björn Ulvaeus is the executive producer and responsible for the show’s lyrics to previously released instrumental music by Benny Andersson among others. The music will be performed live by a ‘flying’ circus orchestra. Cirkus Cirkör’s founder, director and artistic director Tilde Björfors is the circus director and alongside her is Maria Blom, director and playwright, who is responsible for directing the actors.

Magdalena Åberg is responsible for the stage design and costume design.
