Family Fab: Peppa Pig’s First – Ever U.S. Live Theatrical Tour Comes to Durham April 7

By  | 

The adventures of Peppa Pig , a loveable, exuberant little piggy who lives with her brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig, are coming to the Carolinas. Peppa Pig’s Big Splash is an action-packed live show, based on the popular Peppa Pig television series, designed to deliver to preschoolers and young fans an unforgettable first live theater experience. A fully immersive musical production featuring a dozen familiar and original songs, as well as an interactive sing-a-long, the live stage show will have fans laughing, singing, dancing and of course jumping in muddy puddles too – just like Peppa.

So what happens at the show? In Peppa Pig’s Big Splash, the nursery roof is leaking and Peppa and her friends need to fix it quickly. They set up a fair to raise money so Mr. Bull can do the repairs. There’s plenty of fun to be had as Peppa, George, Mummy and Daddy Pig, along with Danny Dog, Pedro Pony and Suzy Sheep work together to organize an exciting day out complete with a Champion Puddle Jumping competition judged by Mr. Potato, where everyone gets wet! An interactive experience full of singing, dancing, games, and muddy puddles, Peppa Pig’s Big Splash is a guaranteed blast for preschoolers and their parents alike!

Peppa Pig is an absolute superstar among the preschool set and their families all across America and she will be making her biggest splash yet with the upcoming tour, now set to visit 65 additional cities in 2016,” said Jonathan Shank, Red Light Management, a producer of Peppa Pig’s Big Splash. “With many of the initial shows already sold out and many more performances added to accommodate the strong demand for tickets, Peppa Pig’s theatrical tour is proving to be one hot ticket for families this fall!

Peppa Pig’s popularity continues to soar in the U.S. Families are flocking to major retailers nationwide, including Toys “R” Us, Walmart and Target, where hundreds of Peppa products have taken over shelves. Peppa is also a star on social media, connecting each day with her more than 2.5 million global followers on Facebook alone.

“We’re thrilled that even more families all around the country will have the opportunity to spend the day with Peppa and her family and friends,” said Joan Grasso, VP, Licensing – North America, eOne Family. “The live show is a fresh new way for U.S. fans to experience Peppa Pig and the tour promises to be BIG fun for the whole family.”
