Peppa Pig Live in South Africa” is an action-packed rollicking stage show, based on the award-winning television series (broadcast locally on E-TV and DSTV) especially designed to give young fans an unforgettable first live theatre experience. A fully immersive musical production featuring a dozen familiar and original songs, as well as an interactive sing-a-long, the live stage show will have fans 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 Creative Director. “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 experience Peppa Pig Live in South Africa,” said Ami Dieckman, Head of International Licensing at Entertainment One Family. “We can’t wait to bring Peppa and all her friends to SA for the first time in this incredible live production. Fans around the country will be dancing, singing and of course jumping in muddy puddles.”

 

Peppa Pig is quite literally taking over the world! From the Peppa Pig World theme park attraction in England to becoming the number one television show for kids aged two to five years, the brand’s core values of family, friends, imagination & kindness, have helped earn Peppa legions of fans amongst parents and children alike. Peppa’s previous live shows have taken her around the world – from breaking records in London's West End to sell-out tours across USA, Europe, 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!”

 

Come join Peppa, George, Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and more in a fantastic adventure filled with buckets of surprises and plenty of muddy puddles!
