PEPPA PIG’S PARTY!
[Live on stage Wed 7th & Thur 8th April]
Peppa Pig is currently one of TV’s top-rated children’s shows and a BAFTA Award winner. Now, for the first time ever, she has her own live stage show. Peppa Pig’s Party opened on 30 September in Exeter and played to 7 venues in autumn 2009. Now in 2010 this extensive UK tour continues to 60 theatres across including the King's Theatre Glasgow.
Many creative talents have come together to assemble this exciting new production where the main characters are played by puppets with visible puppeteers.
· Nigel Plaskitt is Puppetry Consultant for the show and is, arguably, the UK’s most experienced puppet specialist. His many credits include Monkey (who appears alongside Al played by Johnny Vegas) in the current award-winning commercials for PG Tips; Spitting Image; and the current West End hit show Avenue Q.
· The music comes from LazyTown’s highly talented composer Mani Svavarsson whose songs are well known to children and parents.
· Director Richard Lewis (who has also adapted Peppa Pig for stage) has many acclaimed children’s stage shows to his credit, including Fimbles and the two LazyTown Live! tours (2007 – 2008 and 2009).
Peppa Pig’s Party is produced by the team (Fiery Angel and Limelight Productions) behind the recent tours of LazyTown Live! and Roald Dahl’s The BFG.
Peppa is a playful little pig who lives with her little brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. Through everyday adventures she plays games, makes new friends and enjoys her absolutely favourite activity – jumping up and down in muddy puddles! Today is a very special day. It’s Peppa Pig's birthday. Peppa Pig’s Party is a chance for all her young friends across the UK to join in the fun with Suzy Sheep, Danny Dog and Emily Elephant for her perfect party. This charming, original and imaginative show is full of brand new songs, muddy puddles, and oinks!
