In "Peppa Pig's Surprise," it's a lovely day and Peppa is playing outside with her friends. Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig have a surprise for her and her younger brother George, but no matter how hard they try, they cannot guess what it is. Audiences will enjoy fun interactive games and, of course, many surprises! The live show encompasses the charming, colorful nature of the incredibly popular television series and features brand-new songs and life-size puppets that walk, talk, dance, and jump up and down to give audiences a unique, fully immersive theatrical experience from the moment the curtain opens. The show gives preschoolers and their families the opportunity to engage with their favorite characters like never before in an unforgettable first live theater experience.
"Peppa Pig fans across North America have responded overwhelmingly positively to the live tour and we're excited to work with eOne to bring this new theater show to so many additional cities next year for even more families to enjoy together," said Jonathan Shank, Executive Producer, Red Light Management.
"Peppa Pig Live gives young audiences the chance to be part of the action, as they see their favorite characters and other familiar elements from the series come to life before their eyes on stage," said Joan Grasso, SVP, Licensing - North America, eOne Family. "We are thrilled to continue working with the team at Red Light to help put smiles on the faces of more children and families throughout the U.S. and Canada."
