You might have seen a recent article I wrote on ‘parental rip offs‘ , where I discussed my frustration at the overly inflated prices charged for foil balloons and plastic toys at theatre performances for children.
Whilst this is a real pet hate of mine, the theatre itself is something I have always enjoyed, and something I like to do with the children.
If your children are fans of Peppa and George then you may be interested to know that the autumn tour dates have been announced. You can find out more here.
Here is a clip of the last tour…
The background to the new tour goes like this…
It’s a lovely day and Peppa is playing outside with her friends. 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. In PEPPA PIG’S SUR-PRISE audiences will enjoy interactive fun, games and, of course, surprises. This charming, colourful new show features new songs and new life-size puppets. PEPPA PIG’S SURPRISE promises to be the perfect theatre show for all pre-schoolers. Suitable for ages 3+.
Currently one of the most popular shows on the UK and Ireland theatre touring circuit, Fiery Light’s 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.
I am so pleased to hear they will be using life-size puppets in this tour as I wasn’t a huge fan of the smaller puppets – they sparked lots of “that’s not the real Peppa Pig” comments from the children!
