“Peppa Pig is an absolute superstar among the preschool set and their
families all across America and she will be making her biggest splash
yet with the upcoming tour, now set to visit 65 additional cities in
2016,” said Jonathan Shank, Red Light Management, a producer of Peppa
Pig’s Big Splash. “With many of the initial shows already sold out and
many more performances added to accommodate the strong demand for
tickets, Peppa Pig’s theatrical tour is proving to be one hot ticket for
families this fall!”

Peppa Pig’s Big Splash is an action-packed live show, based on
the popular Peppa Pig television series, designed to deliver to
preschoolers and young fans an unforgettable first live theater
experience. A fully immersive musical production featuring a dozen
familiar and original songs, as well as an interactive sing-a-long, the
live stage show will have fans laughing, singing, dancing and of course
jumping in muddy puddles too – just like Peppa.

“We’re thrilled that even more families all around the country will have
the opportunity to spend the day with Peppa and her family and friends,”
said Joan Grasso, VP, Licensing – North America, eOne Family. “The live
show is a fresh new way for U.S. fans to experience Peppa Pig and the
tour promises to be BIG fun for the whole family.”

In Peppa Pig’s Big Splash, the nursery roof is leaking and
Peppa and her friends need to fix it quickly. They set up a fair to
raise money so Mr. Bull can do the repairs. There’s plenty of fun to be
had as Peppa, George, Mummy and Daddy Pig, along with Danny Dog, Pedro
Pony and Suzy Sheep work together to organize an exciting day out
complete with a Champion Puddle Jumping competition judged by Mr.
Potato, where everyone gets wet! An interactive experience full of
singing, dancing, games, and muddy puddles, Peppa Pig’s Big Splash
is a guaranteed blast for preschoolers and their parents alike!

Peppa Pig’s popularity continues to soar in the U.S.
Families are flocking to major retailers nationwide, including Toys “R”
Us, Walmart and Target, where hundreds of Peppa products have taken over
shelves. Peppa is also a star on social media, connecting each day with
her more than 2.5 million global followers on Facebook alone.

Airing each weekday on Nick Jr., Peppa Pig follows the adventures of
Peppa, a loveable, exuberant little piggy who lives with her brother
George, Mummy Pig and Daddy Pig. Peppa’s favorite things include playing
games, dressing up, spending days outdoors, and jumping in muddy
puddles. All episodes are wholesome entertainment for the entire family;
Peppa’s adventures always end happily with loud snorts of laughter.
