Bluey and her Blue Heeler family are coming to Canada. “Bluey’s Big Play,” a live performance based on the animated series, will take the show on the road to venues in Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary, Vancouver, Edmonton and Toronto, starting Dec. 8. Fans can expect more cities to be added. 

Based on an original new story written by “Bluey” creator Joe Brumm, “Bluey’s Big Play” also contains new music by “Bluey” composer, Joff Bush. The live theater program will feature puppetry, live actors and sets from the series. 

“We’re thrilled to be bringing ‘Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show’ to Canadian audiences for the very first time,” says Rosemary Myers, director, Windmill Theatre Co. “The response to the show from fans across the U.S. and Australia has been nothing short of amazing, and we can’t wait for Canadian families to experience all the fun and excitement of having Bluey and her family on stage live in their city.” 

“Bluey’s Big Play” is presented by BBC Studios and Andrew Kay in association with Windmill Theatre Co. The stage show enjoyed success in Australia, where it premiered in Bluey’s hometown, Brisbane, and went on to perform 447 times across 65 venues, including the Sydney Opera House. The tour is currently in the U.S., where it has played at the Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden in New York, the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and the Chicago Theatre.
