Peppa Pig's Surprise at Buxton Opera House on March 26 and 27

Peppa Pig’s Surprise is the fourth Peppa show to be produced by leading children’s theatre team Fiery Light and marks their seventh year of touring.

It’s a lovely day and Peppa Pig is playing outside with her friends. Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig have got a surprise for her and her younger brother George but no matter how hard they try, they cannot guess what it is.

In Peppa Pig’s Surprise audiences can look forward to a host of interactive fun, games, new songs, new life-size puppets, and of course surprises.

The show is perfect for preschoolers aged 3+.

Currently one of the most popular shows on the UK and Ireland theatre touring circuit, Fiery Light’s Peppa Pig live stage show experience has now gone international with a production running in Australia and another opening in the US in autumn 2015. There are also licensed productions of the show in Spain, Italy and Latin America.

Following adaptations of Peppa Pig Live, Peppa Pig’s Party, Peppa Pig’s Treasure Hunt and Peppa’s Big Splash, Richard Lewis has once again done the adaption for this stage show. His other most recent productions include Octonauts Live and Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom.

Richard said: “It hardly seems like six years since we first started on the first Peppa Pig live stage show. It’s been an incredible experience seeing the children’s reactions, not only in the UK but throughout the world and it just confirms that Peppa really is a worldwide phenomenon.”

Peppa Pig’s Surprise is at Buxton Opera House on Saturday, March 26, and Sunday, March 27. Tickets are priced from £16 to £20 and discounts are available. To book, call 01298 72190 or visit www.
