“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.”
