Peppa Pig Live, Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever, no less!
On Friday Monsieur Incidental and I took Little L (3) to the Duke of Yorks Theatre, London, to watch everyone’s favourite pig, live on stage.
I don’t care what people say about Peppa Pig, I have quite a soft spot for the show. I love the adult characters, and the humour aimed at us grown ups, and that isn’t forgotten in Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever.
Back in the summer we reviewed In the Night Garden so we kind of knew what to expect. Peppa, George and their friends are puppets whereas the adult characters, Daddy Pig, Mummy Pig, Mr Bull and Miss Rabbit are in mascot style costumes.
Peppa’s Best Day Ever is led by Peppa’s (human) friend, Daisy
Daisy is a very animated character and gets all the kids (and the parents for that matter, I kid you not) in the mood with singing and dancing. I hope I’m not giving too much away but the plot is that Peppa Pig, George Pig, Mummy Pig, Daddy Pig and Daisy go out for the day in Daddy Pig’s red car. They don’t get far before they are stuck in traffic due to Mr Bull (all together now) DIGGING UP THE ROAD!
Cue some singing and dancing and Mr Bull teaching us all about traffic lights and how important they are.
Peppa Pig Live on Stage then moves on to the caves they are to explore
Miss Rabbit is in charge here (it will come as no surprise that Miss Rabbit does all the jobs during this production) and she escorts the hard hat wearing family into the cave system. There is a nice segment in the dark with lights from the hard hats.
The family then go on to the castle where there is supposed to be a real life dragon…
Of course Miss Rabbit is selling ice creams outside the castle, then taking the tours in the castle!
Continuing Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever inside the castle Peppa Pig, George Pig and Daisy are joined by Danny Dog and Gerald Giraffe.
Miss Rabbit shows them around the throne room where they take turns being king and queen. Then they go to the banquet room. There is another fun segment in the dark involving floating food, cheese and dabbing knights! The kids and adults loved it.
Obviously no castle is complete without spotting a dragon, George Pig was thoroughly overjoyed and so were the audience. Fans of the show will be pleased to hear there was jumping in muddy puddles and the obligatory Bing Bong song too.
Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever was just over an hour long with a short interval
The theatre was packed and I can honestly say I think most of the parents enjoyed it as much as the children. There is the obligatory merchandise for sale in the foyer and balloons at the end of the show. We bought a balloon for £5 which is about right (please dispose of yours responsibly). Little L has been talking about it since and keeps flicking through the programme, showing his big brother the characters and telling him the story.
Peppa Pig’s Best Day Ever will be performing at theatres around the country including the Churchill Theatre, Bromely 15th and 16th February.
