Depiction in the series

The Method Mares are a troupe of performance actors who first appear in the season five episode Made in Manehattan. Coco Pommel books the troupe to give a guest performance at the Midsummer Theater Revival, but due to her overwhelming workload and lack of volunteers, she struggles with organizing everything. Applejack and Rarity lend their services to Coco, but they become equally overwhelmed.

When the Method Mares arrive for their costume fitting and rehearsal, Raspberry Beret is nearly injured when the dilapidated stage collapses.

Unable to put on the big show they had originally planned, Applejack, Rarity, and Coco organize a smaller performance on a smaller stage, and the Method Mares put on a play about Revival founder Charity Kindheart. In the play, Raspberry Beret plays the part of Charity Kindheart, Stardom plays her friend Mrs. Pearblossom, and On Stage and Late Show play bit roles.

The Method Mares' performance attracts the attention of numerous Bronclyn neighborhood ponies and turns out to be a huge success.

In the season eight episode Horse Play, On Stage and Raspberry Beret have speaking roles as Princess Celestia's acting coaches. All four Method Mares appear in the audience during Twilight Sparkle's play.

Promotional material

The Method Mares are featured in the "One Million Friends" poster on the My Little Pony Facebook page.[1]


Method Mares, Convincing Act card MLP CCG
The Method Mares appear on the Season 5 poster. In the Marks in Time expansion set of Enterplay's collectible card game, card #43 R is of the Method Mares. It gives them the description "Unknown to most, the Method Mares were once Manehattan's slickest con artists. They learned the error of their ways and decided to give back to the community by acting for free in public theater events, which makes them much happier than they ever were as criminals."


Made in Manehattan

On Stage: Um, excuse me? Is this where the Midsummer Theater Revival is supposed to be, perchance?
Raspberry Beret: We're here for the dress rehearsal?
Coco Pommel: Oh, yes! We've just put the finishing touches on the costumes.
"Late Show": [to Stardom] At least those look professional.
Raspberry Beret: We'll do a dry run of the play first, and then the fitting.
On Stage: Should we go ahead and start?
On Stage: Thank you, fillies and gentlecolts. Please give a warm welcome to the one who made this entire event possible – our neighbor Coco Pommel!

Horse Play

On Stage: Avec pleasure, your Majesty!
Raspberry Beret: Let's be weeping willows in the wind! We are strong in adversity yet supple as we bow to fate.
On Stage: My goodness! I had no idea this production would have such elaborate special effects!
