Caroline Sunshine, who plays the ambitious dancer Tinka on the Disney Channel comedy Shake It Up, will do a meet-and-greet with fans from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at Stonebriar Centre, 2601 Preston Road in Frisco.
Sunshine’s appearance is part of “Make It Yours,” a back-to-school style event with Radio Disney (KMKI/620 AM) and JC Penney. Children and families can personalize backpacks and shoes at a “Make It Yours” customization station, and the event will feature gift-card giveaways and other prizes, with interactive entertainment from the Radio Disney AM 620 Road Crew.
Shake It Up is about two best friends who land a job as background dancers on a show called Shake It Up, Chicago! Tinka Hessenheffer, Sunshine’s character, is a European exchange student who is the duo’s main rival. Sunshine previously appeared in the feature film Marmaduke and in the TV-movie Team Spitz.
