Peppa Pig live stage tour
As an early birthday present/Christmas present for our little one, we decided that the Peppa Pig live stage show would be a great hit as Peppa Pig, the fun-loving character from Nick Junior television, is a firm favourite in our house.
Ticket prices are quite high really for what this show actually is;
Tickets £12.50, £14.50
Family Ticket £50.00
Under 16 £2.00 off
I am unsure whether the prices differ depending upon what theatre you see this in, though from what I can see, this is average price in most places. Specific theatres may add some or take some depending on the economy at the time!
The show is only approximately one hour long with a short interval in the middle (so perhaps a 40 minute showing in all). This short a time is great for young children though is horrendous when you think of the money you have just spent for such a short time!
The show itself was not too bad. My little one loved it. It was the first time we had gone to anything like this and our youngster was transfixed and often danced to the songs, singing out loud along with the characters, which is completely encouraged in this stage show. I even found myself singing along to some well known songs from the programme!
The characters are large puppets which are operated by people who can be seen in plain clothes behind the large puppets at all times. This, to me, was very off-putting though my youngster didn't seem to even notice them and after a while, neither did I as they did a great job at blending in to the background in the way of becoming the character themselves. I don't really know what I had envisioned before I went, though it certainly was not this, though as an after though, I think this is possibly one of the better ways to portray these lovable characters. One little annoyance, though, and this is one for my little one and not really me, and that is the fact that many main characters from the television programme were missing. My youngster kept asking where certain characters were and was quite upset as they did not appear. This, I think, is a real shame.
Yes, the price is very high for what you actually get, though it is a very enjoyable show for young fans of the television programme.
Summary: A great show for fans of Peppa Pig though very pricey for such a short show
