Direct from London’s West End: PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT

** Coming to Wellington Friday 29 & Saturday 30 August **


The stage version of the hugely popular pre-school television show Peppa Pig is on its way to New Zealand!

On The Road Events, in association with Life Like Touring and Fiery Light UK, is excited to announce a six centre tour of the live children’s theatre show, direct from London’s West End, PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT.


PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT will be touring the country from Thursday 21 August to Tuesday 2 September, starting in Hamilton, before heading to Auckland, New Plymouth, Wellington, Dunedin and finishing in Invercargill.

Launched on TVNZ’s Kidzone in 2012, Entertainment One’s Peppa Pig is a massive hit, with multiple episodes playing every day and is one of the most popular programmes on TVNZ Ondemand across all genres. Peppa Pig is currently the fastest growing pre-school toy brand and children’s DVD franchise in Australasia.

The Peppa Pig live theatre show has been performed over 650 times to an audience of more than 650,000 people in the UK and is at last on its way to fans in New Zealand for the very first time.

In this beautiful new theatrical production, Peppa Pig and her friends set off on a treasure hunt. Peppa, her brother George and friend Danny Dog get up to fun and games on a day out on Grandad Dog's boat. There are clues aplenty as Pedro Pony, Polly Parrot and Zoe Zebra help them find their treasure as they all enjoy a day of adventure. Full sail, ahoy!

PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT features true-to-life puppets, operated by talented puppeteer/ musical theatre performers singing live and forming an integral part of the show. Young Peppa Pig fans in New Zealand will be charmed and delighted with perfect sing-along-songs and new adventures that end happily with loud snorts of laughter.


PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT tours six New Zealand centres from Thursday 21 August to Tuesday 2 September. For more information and to book tickets, visit www.peppapiglive.co.nz
