She’s a cartoon dog who’s made a big impact on both children and their parents around the world.

Now Bluey and her family are coming out of the television for a live theatre show that will include four days in Cornwall.

For the first time ever, hit theatre tour Bluey’s Big Play is visiting the UK following sell-out shows across Australia and the US.

Bluey’s Big Play, a new theatrical adaptation of the BAFTA & Emmy® award-winning children’s television series produced by Ludo Studio, which airs on Disney+ and CBeebies, will hit the road in December this year and tour the UK and Ireland until summer 2024.

It’s had five star reviews already, with The Guardian describing it as “A glorious celebration of everything you love about the show” and Broadway World going so far as to say: “This show has to be one of the best, if not the best, pieces of children's theatre and family theatre that I've ever seen.”

With an original story by Bluey creator Joe Brumm, and new music by Bluey composer, Joff Bush, Bluey’s Big Play will come to the Hall for Cornwall in Truro between Thursday, April 11 and Sunday, April 14.

Tickets are on sale now from costing between £14 and £26. 

Audiences of all ages will get to see Bluey, her younger sister Bingo and mum and dad, Chilli and Bandit, featuring puppets, live actors and well known sets. Bluey’s Big Play is produced by Andrew Kay and Cuffe & Taylor with Windmill Theatre Co for BBC Studios.

Natasha Spence, head of attractions at BBC Studios Live Entertainment, said: “Following the incredible reaction to the live theatre show in the US and in Australia, we are so excited to bring Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show to fans across the UK and Ireland.

The stage show has enjoyed much success in Australia, where it premiered in Bluey’s hometown of Brisbane and went on to perform 447 times across 65 venues, including the Sydney Opera House.

The tour is currently in the US where it’s played at the Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden in New York, the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and the iconic Chicago Theatre. A Canadian tour was also announced earlier this year, with Bluey’s Big Show now seen by nearly one million fans worldwide.

Since bursting onto TV screens in Australia in 2018, and subsequently the UK, Bluey won the 2022 BAFTA Children & Young People Award in the International category and has picked up its consecutive fourth AACTA Best Children’s Programme award to add to an International Emmy and numerous awards for craft and production around the world.

A ratings hit, Bluey is the number one children’s show in Australia, number one on Disney Junior in the UK, and the number one rated show on CBeebies in the UK. It also remains popular on Disney+, which has first-window broadcast rights for Bluey in the UK, with ten new episodes airing in July.
