The lovable little pig Peppa is heading back to Norwich with Mummy and Daddy Pig, George and all her friends in a new live stage show called Peppa Pig’s Surprise!
Already a firm favourite with local audiences, Peppa will be on stage at Norwich Theatre Royal on Wednesday 31st August and Thursday 1st September, in a show which is ideal summer holiday entertainment for preschool children aged three upwards.
This brand new show sees Peppa playing outside with her friends on a lovely day. Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig have got 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 interactive fun, games and, of course, surprises in a charming and highly colourful new show which features new songs and new life-size puppets. It is particularly suitable for pre-school children and early years primary school pupils aged two to five, firing their imaginations and introducing them to theatre with characters they love and who promote family values and community spirit.
Produced by leading children’s theatre team Fiery Light, in partnership with licensor Entertainment One, this brand new show marks the seventh consecutive year of Peppa Pig live theatre tours since the first tour in 2009, and the fourth Peppa Pig stage production in total following on from Peppa Pig’s Party, Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt and Peppa Pig’s Big Splash.
Currently one of the most popular shows on the UK and Ireland theatre touring circuit, the Peppa Pig live stage show experience has now gone international with a production running in Australia and another opening in the US in autumn 2015. There are also licensed productions of the show in Spain, Italy and Latin America
Richard Lewis has once again adapted the stage episodes from the hit TV show, created by Astley Baker Davies, and he also directs, having done the the same for the three previous shows.
The cast are Melanie Ann, Emma Grace Arends, Liam Farrow, Auriol Hatcher, Emma Hilts, Lauren Martin and David Sandham, and new sing-along songs and music are again provided by BAFTA award-winning Mani Svavarsson.
Judy Foster, Theatre Royal communications officer, said:
“It’s wonderful to see small children come into the theatre and get such enjoyment from seeing Peppa Pig on stage – it’s a great way to entertain them during the long summer holidays and makes for a lovely family outing.”
