Peppa Pig Stage Shows Debut

Entertainment One’s Peppa Pig is launching two new live stage productions in Australia and the U.K. this month.

The shows, “Peppa Pig’s Big Splash” in the U.K. and “Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt” in Australia, are being supported by touring production companies Fiery Angel and Life Like Touring, respectively. The U.K. production will tour through October 2014 and include stops in Ireland; while the Oz production will run in seven capital cities nationwide.

“The appetite for Peppa Pig live entertainment continues to rise and the demand for tickets on both sides of the globe has been truly overwhelming,” says Andrew Carley, head of global licensing, Entertainment One. “Initial reactions to the shows have been tremendous and the positive impact the added exposure will have on sales of licensed merchandise cannot be underestimated.”
