Peppa Pig Live returns to South Africa

Peppa Pig will be returning to South Africa in September. Peppa Pig Live will present Peppa Pig’s Big Day Out at the Artscape Opera House in Cape Town from 6 to 8 September 2019; The Globe at Suncoast in Durban from 13 to 15 September 2019; Emperors Palace from 20 to 29 September 2019. In this thrilling adventure, Polly Parrot and Mr Dinosaur have vanished – leaving Peppa, George, Mummy and Daddy Pig to embark on an incredible journey to find the missing duo. As always, Peppa’s special friends, and firm fan favourites, Suzy Sheep, Danny Dog and Pedro Pony are on hand to help in the hunt.

This action-packed live stage show is specially designed to give young fans an unforgettable first live theatre experience. It will encompasses all the charming, colourful nature of the hit television series with everyone’s favourite songs.

“Peppa Pig is one of the most loved characters by pre-schoolers and their families here in South Africa,” says Chad Findlay, the show’s resident creative director. “The response to our last visit was incredible and we can’t wait to return. This one-of-a-kind stage show, with incredible life-sized puppets and beautifully costumed characters. The show brings Peppa Pig to life in a whole new way for South African audiences.”

“We’re so excited for local fans to once again be a part of Peppa and George’s adventure in Peppa Pig’s Big Day Out,” said Ami Dieckman, head of international licensing at Entertainment One Family. “Fans around the country will be dancing, singing and of course jumping in muddy puddles.”
