Peppa Pig Parties at Criterion from NovemberDate: 21 May 2010
Peppa Pig's Party, adapted for the stage from the hit children's TV series, has announced a limited West End season at the Criterion Theatre from 30 November to 18 December 2010.
Running in the daytime slot, the show will run in tandem with the Criterion's main show, The 39 Steps.
The story centres on the the exploits of Peppa, an anthropomorphic little pig who lives with her little brother George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. Through everyday adventures she plays games, makes new friends and enjoys her absolutely favourite activity – jumping up and down in muddy puddles.
Peppa Pig's Party is about a very special day. It’s Peppa Pig's birthday and a chance for all her young friends to join in the fun with Suzy Sheep, Danny Dog and Emily Elephant for her perfect party. This charming, original and imaginative show is full of brand new songs, muddy puddles, and lots of oinks.
Co-producer Edward Snape (who also produces The 39 Steps), said: “After a virtually sold out theatre tour to almost 80 theatres across the UK, Peppa Pig and her friends are now coming to the West End for Christmas … Her stage show features train rides, cake baking and plenty of games for everyone to take part. With lots of brand new Peppa Pig songs and plenty of muddy puddles this is the one party in Westminster that Peppa Pig wants us to join!”
