Peppa Pig returns for Treasure Hunt, 15 Feb

WhatsOnStage logo
Following sell out dates at The Lowry, Peppa Pig returns to the region for two more dates in October. The BAFTA Award-winning children’s TV show Peppa Pig is recreated live on stage using magical puppets.
Peppa is a playful 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 Treasure is 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 oinks.

Nigel Plaskitt, Puppetry Consultant for the show, is the most experienced puppet specialist in the UK. His many credits include Monkey (who appears alongside Al played by Johnny Vegas) in the current award-winning commercials for PG Tips; Spitting Image; and the current West End hit show Avenue Q. The show’s music comes from LazyTown’s composer Mani Svavarsson. Director Richard Lewis (who has also adapted Peppa Pig for stage) has many acclaimed children’s stage shows to his credit, including Fimbles and the two LazyTown Live! tours (2007 – 2008 and 2009).

Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt is produced by the team (Fiery Angel and Limelight Productions) behind the recent tour of LazyTown Live! and it arrives at the Opera House in Manchester from 15 - 16 February, 2012.
