The listing for 41714 Andrea’s Theatre School originally appeared on the Building Instructions portal yesterday, but no image was available at the time. There’s one there now, and it reveals a sizeable brick-built stage, complete with red curtain, viewing galleries, an organ and even a costume department.
While that’s all well and great for Friends, and further diversifies the attentions of the mini-doll theme, it’s even better for those of us gunning for a complete set of Muppets minifigures next month. The latest series of Collectible Minifigures drops on May 1, and they’re crying out for some kind of brick-built theatre backdrop to display them on. Like, for example, 41714 Andrea’s Theatre School.
We don’t have a firm release date for the Friends set yet, nor indeed a price or piece count, but the instructions database suggests it’ll land sometime in 2022. The safe money is on a June 1 release given the timing of this listing, and a full reveal is presumably right around the corner. While you wait to see more of 41714 Andrea’s Theatre School, check out our early review of 71033 The Muppets.
