Two out-of-work animators, Neville Astley and Mark Baker, didn’t know they would revolutionise cartoons for kids when they created Peppa Pig in the year 2000. Fast forward to 2019, and US toymaker Hasbro is currently attempting to buy the franchise for a hefty $4 billion.

After over seven seasons, raking in many millions in merchandise, this British sensation is now taking things to the theatrical stage. After running into packed houses across the US, UK, and Asia, ‘Peppa Pig Musical’, the live theatrical adaptation of the famed animated series on TV, is finally coming to India!

Making Children’s Day more exciting for the little ones, the most charming little piggy on the block will hit the stage making its debut with the preview show at Bal Gandharv Rang Mandir, Mumbai on November 14th. This will be followed by over 78 shows in Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad, Jaipur and more.

This fully immersive musical—organised by Viacom18 and BookMyShow—with incredible life-sized characters with beautiful costumes will bring every kid’s favourite Peppa to life like never before and elevate their experience

“Ever since its launch Peppa Pig has become a household name and an important part of our ecosystem. Owing to its growing demand and popularity, we’re thrilled to bring a one-of-its-kind live musical for the audience to feel closer to their favourite characters and witness this wonderful experience,” said Mahesh Shetty, Head - Network Sales, Viacom18.
