Peppa Pig, the star of Entertainment One’s popular preschool show, is hitting the road for her first US theatrical tour.
Dubbed Peppa Pig’s Big Splash, the live-stage show is slated to visit 23 cities on the East Coast from November to December, with another leg of US sites scheduled for 2016.
Featuring familiar and original songs, including sing-a-longs, the show follows Peppa and her friends as they set up a fair to raise money to fix a leaky nursery roof. The tour brings Peppa from overseas, where the show has sold more than 650,000 tickets in the UK.
The tour is produced by Red Light Management, Fiery Light and eOne.
Peppa Pig is currently the top show on Nick Jr. for kids ages two to five, reaching 76 million households daily. Along with the hit TV series, the property also has a growing global consumer products program.
