PEPPA Pig is celebrating ten years of live shows with a new adventure, Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever!, visiting the Grand Opera House, York, on March 4 and 5.
Performances start at 1pm and 4pm on the first day; 10am and 1pm on the second, and courtesy of the Cumberland Street theatre, CharlesHutchPress has one family ticket (four seats) to be won for the 4pm Wednesday performance.
Based on the Entertainment One animated television series, this is Peppa Pig’s sixth touring production, rooted as ever in songs, games and laughter as Peppa and friends make a big splash when they jump in puddles.
Peppa Pig Live has been enjoyed by more than 1.5 million people in Britain, playing eight consecutive West End seasons, as well as touring the United States and Australia.
In the wake of directing and adapting the stage shows Peppa Pig’s Adventure, Peppa Pig’s Party, Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt, Peppa Pig’s Big Splash and Peppa Pig’s Surprise, Richard Lewis is doing likewise for Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever, working with BAFTA award-winning composer Mani Svavarsson.
Produced by children’s theatre team Fierylight, in tandem with eOne, the new adventure finds Peppa Pig excited to be going on a special day out with George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig.
Peppa’s best day ever will involve a road‐trip full of fun adventures. From castles to caves, dragons to dinosaurs and ice‐creams to the muddy puddles, there will be something for all Peppa’s family and their friends Mr Bull, Suzy Sheep, Gerald Giraffe and very busy newcomer Miss Rabbit to enjoy.
Tickets are on sale on 0844 871 3024 or at atgtickets.com/york.
