Maybe you thought we were going to say something like, “See Spot run,” but we didn’t. Nope. This time, we’re going with see Spot live on stage. Okay, so it’s not the real Spot (meaning, not an actual dog). Instead, see a playful puppet version of the beloved pup on stage in an adventure-filled production from the Netherlands’ Theater Terra.

The iconic puppy, created by acclaimed children’s author Eric Hill, is starring in his very own show. Based on the well-known books, the show features the tale of Spot and his friends as they visit the pup’s dad Sam on the farm. When the animals get to the farm they find that everyone’s missing! Spot and his friend Helen the hippopotamus set out to find the missing farm animals.

The 50 minute show features brilliant puppets and audience involvement. Michiel Morssinkhof, Executive Producer of Theater Terra, says,

“We are proud to bring SPOT – LIVE to Australian audiences. It is an incredible warm, engaging production that has been well received around the world, with one of the most loved children’s book characters of all time.”

    My little one is glued to the tv when an episode of Spot is on as I’ve discovered there is actually a DVD out. When we read the books, she keeps on saying Spot and can’t wait to lift the flap or turn the page to found out what he is doing next.

    The gorgeous Spot books were the first to capture our sons attention, he loved opening the fold outs and finding what was there.

    Spot is a classic that everyone can enjoy, young & old. Funny little stories easy to read & understand for all levels of reading. Even more fantastic on TV my little ones never turn away when Spot is on. How exciting & fantastic it would be to take them to watch Spot live..

    I’ve always loved Spot books. They are such great books for kids and encourages a love of reading from a young age. What child doesn’t love lifting the flap to see what’s hiding beneath? My son especially enjoyed “Spot’s Baby Sister” when he found out his own baby sister was on the way. Now they both enjoy the Spot books together and are among the favourites at bedtime, and I’m sure they will continue to be for a long time to come.
