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 and dancing – just like Peppa.
“Peppa Pig is one of the most adored characters by the preschool set and their families here in the U.S.,” says Jonathan Shank, Red Light Management. “We’re very excited to bring Peppa and all her friends and family to North America in this very unique production. We can’t wait to see her fans from across the country singing, dancing, and of course jumping in muddy puddles.”
“We’re delighted for U.S. fans to experience Peppa Pig’s Big Splash,” said Joan Grasso, VP, Licensing – North America, eOne Family. “The high-quality, vibrant show brings Peppa Pig to life in a whole new way and we’re thrilled to give families the opportunity to engage with their favorite characters like never before.”
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 the whole family.
Peppa Pig is steadily winning over children and families around the globe. The series is the top show on Nick Jr. for kids ages 2-5, reaching 76 million households daily. The brand’s extremely popular apps and toys, as well as its strong digital presence on social media, help make the Peppa Pig property a powerhouse worldwide.
The brand-new live tour brings Peppa directly from overseas, where the show is getting rave reviews and has sold more than 650,000 tickets.
