Cartoon dogs will hit the stage when Bluey’s Big Play comes to the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton from August 27 to 30 next year.

This in an adaptation of the BAFTA and Emmy award-winning children’s television series produced by Ludo Studio, which is the top-rated show on CBeebies and Disney Junior.

Bluey’s Big Play, which features an original story by Bluey creator Joe Brumm and new music by Bluey composer Joff Bush, has been performed at venues across Australia and the USA, including the Sydney Opera House.

Bluey, her younger sister Bingo, and their mum and dad Chilli and Bandit will appear as brilliantly created puppets alongside human actors and in front of iconic sets.

When Dad feels like a little bit of Sunday afternoon time out, Bluey and Bingo have other plans. Join them as they pull out all the games and cleverness at their disposal to get Dad off that bean bag.

Bluey’s Big Play is produced by Andrew Kay, and Cuffe and Taylor, with the Windmill Theatre Company, for BBC Studios.

Natasha Spence, head of attractions at BBC Studios Live Entertainment, said: “We are so excited to bring Bluey’s Big Play the stage show to fans across the UK and Ireland.”

Director Rosemary Myers, of the Windmill Theatre Company, added: “We can’t wait for UK families to experience all the fun and excitement of having Bluey and her family on stage live in their city.”

Ben Hatton, senior vice-president of arts and entertainment for Cuffe and Taylor, said: “This phenomenal show brings the beloved characters of Bluey to life on stage, and we cannot contain our excitement for audiences to experience the magic and joy it will bring.”
