This action-packed live stage show is specially designed to give young fans an unforgettable first live theatre experience and encompasses all the charming, colourful nature of the hit television series with everyone’s favourite songs! Fans will be laughing, cheering and dancing – just like Peppa!

“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 – 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.”

Peppa Pig is quite literally taking over the world!

Peppa’s previous live shows have taken her around the world – from breaking records in London’s West End to sell-out tours across the USA, Europe, South Africa, Australia & New Zealand. Parents rave: “Peppa is part of our family and watching my two-year-old daughter laughing, shouting and cheering throughout says it all!”
