Fans at each show can be seen singing and dancing in the aisles.”
“The live show features a lively blend of costumed characters and puppets that walk, talk, dance, and jump up and down to give audiences a unique, interactive theatrical experience from the moment we open the curtain,” said Director Richard Lewis. “Peppa Pig’s Big Splash is a fully immersive musical production featuring a dozen familiar and original songs, as well as a sing-a-long.”
