At the end of August a very special show rolled into Norwich, the Peppa Pig’s Big Splash Live Tour. With Roo and Tigger back from staying with Granny and myself off work for two weeks it was time to start enjoying the last bit of the summer holidays. With the arrival of the Peppa Pig’s Big Splash Live Tour I had planned a surprise trip to the Norwich Theatre Royal and waited to see the look on their faces. As Roo is at the age were she reads every sign we pass and takes in everything around her it wasn’t long before she worked out where we were going, although thankfully she has realised that it’s only fair to keep quiet and let Tigger work it out for himself.
Why you should visit the Peppa Pig’s Big Splash Live Tour
If you have a pre-schooler or any child over the age of 12 months for that matter I am sure that both you and them will be aware of Peppa Pig (if not where have you been hiding?). Peppa Pig and her family; Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and George have captured the hearts of the nation and have brought countless giggles to children (and a few adults too) over the past few years.
If you haven’t managed to catch one of the previous Peppa Pig theatre tours then you are in for a treat. The shows incorporate fun, laughter, silliness and lots of muddy puddles. With Peppa’s friend Daisy visiting to spend some time with her and her friends, join them as they play at the park, sing songs and try to fix the roof of the school house.
Other than Daisy who is ‘real’ person the rest of cast are puppets with their puppeteers who are on stage along side their characters. As a parent I wondered how well this would work, would Tigger think it was strange that there was people on stage as well as Peppa Pig and her friends? Well, he didn’t even notice them and if he did, he certainly didn’t mention it. As the Peppa Pig and the show is so engaging the children watching don’t even realise that they are puppets and just enjoy the show.
Take a look at what the show has in-store for yourself…
