Peppa Pig Live! Peppa Pig’s Big Splash! is coming to a town near you, so grab your tickets to see Peppa, George, and all their friends. The show will be making a stop at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark on April 27 at 6pm as well as the St. George Theatre in Staten Island on April 29 at 5pm. Peppa will be around New Jersey in May as well, visiting the Investors Bank Performing Arts Center in Sewell, NJ on May 3 and the Paramount Theatre in Asbury Park, NJ on May 5.

If you already caught Peppa in her first-ever live U.S. theatrical tour, well, there's more! A brand-new live show, Peppa Pig's Surprise!will be touring in the U.S. this fall. Though you might want to make a long weekend of it, there are tickets available for 60-plus shows, including ones in Hershey, PA; Wallingford, CT; Glenside, PA; and Buffalo throughout October.

If you are a parent of young children you will definitely not want to miss the opportunity to see everyone’s favorite British pig. This preschool-aged Nick Jr. show, turned live theatrical experience will be an all-singing, all-dancing adventure, and there is sure to be plenty of muddy puddles.

The live show follows Peppa and her friends and a little girl named Daisy, who helps move the story along and who also encourages tons of audience participation. Peppa Pig’s Big Splash! runs approximately 120 minutes long with a short intermission.

Director Richard Lewis told USA Today, “The show is designed around interactivity. There are scenes that can't be completed without the involvement of the kids. They need to be engaged, to burn off energy."

Lewis also said that fans of the show will be happy to know that the live production hardly strays from the original. He said, “The reason Peppa captures audiences all over the world is that it appeals to that part of childhood that's about gentleness and safety; we didn't want to betray that."

The St. George Theatre is located at 35 Hyatt St. in Staten Island. The New Jersey Performing Arts Center is located at 1 Center St. in Newark. Tickets are on sale now and party packages and VIP seats are available.
