Peppa Pig is back – and in a big way! Following last year’s super-successful opening, Peppa Pig Live! Big Splash is back for another tour of the country.
If you’re in any way doubting that Peppa isn’t THE most popular character with preschoolers (yeah, you already knew this as your 4-year-old can’t seem to turn away when the much-adored pig pops up on TV), consider the fact that the television show is seen daily by 250,000 viewers. That’s a quarter of a million viewers every day!
Not only is the pig big when it comes to the TV, but Australians have bought more than one million Peppa books and made the character the number one selling plush toy (March 2015).
Australia’s favourite little pink pig is back to the stage with bigger puppets and a new show, directed by the UK’s Richard Lewis. Peppa’s return to the spotlight features not to be missed sing-a-long songs from BAFTA award-winning composer Mani Svavarsson.
Australian producer Anton Berezin, of Life Like Touring, says of the show, “We’ve entertained more families with Peppa Pig Live! than any other kids show we’ve toured in recent years. If there is only one show you share with your little ones this year, make sure Peppa Pig Live! Big Splash is it.”
So, what can you (and your kids) expect from the popular Peppa show this year? Peppa Pig Live! Big Splash features the story of the pink pig and a leaky nursery roof. When Peppa and her friends need to fix they roof they do what any other group of awesome animals would – they throw a party! Your preschooler’s favourite characters (along with Peppa, George, Mummy, Daddy, Danny Dog, Pedro Pony and Suzy Sheep) set out to raise money for Mr Bull to make the nursery’s repairs, with a day of fun! There’s a Champion Puddle Jumping Contest, and of course, singing, dancing and imaginative adventures for all.
