Peppa Pig fans rejoice, she's coming to Bundy!

UPDATE: Peppa Pig is coming to Bundaberg. 

The popular character will put on a show at the Moncrieff Theatre on Wednesday, May 21. Call 4130 4100 to book or to find out more. 

JANUARY 29: Peppa Pig fans are rallying together around the country following the announcement by Life Like Touring in association with Fiery Light UK that Australia's favourite family show, PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT, will tour more of Australia in 2014.

Originally from London's West End, PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT has been seen by almost 85,000 Australians since it launched in October 2013.

Tickets sold so fast and were in such high demand that one ticketing partner compared the response to an on-sale day for a Pink or Radiohead concert.

In an Australian first, Life Like Touring is giving fans direct input into how the tour schedule should be extended this year. You can vote for the cities and towns you'd like to see PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT tour, simply by going to iwannabe.at or facebook.com/lifeliketouring.

"We noticed the many requests from our Peppa Pig fans on social media and we started building a portal for fans to vote on where the show should go next," says Anton Berezin, Producer, Life Like Touring.

"We are thrilled to launch iwannabe.at and encourage fans of the show to get involved and help us program the next phase of the tour. We can't wait to share this wonderful show with many more Australian families."

Launched on the ABC in 2004, Entertainment One's Peppa Pig is now the most popular children's show on Australian TV, screening four times per day and out-rating all other kids shows in its time slot.

Peppa Pig is also the number one rated children's show downloaded on ABC iView, with a staggering 2 million views per month.

In addition to outstanding broadcast figures, Peppa Pig is also currently the fastest growing pre-school toy brand and children's DVD franchise in Australia.

In this beautiful theatrical production, Peppa Pig and her friends set off on a treasure hunt.

Peppa, her brother George and friend Danny Dog get up to fun and games on a day out on Grandad Dog's boat. There are clues aplenty as Pedro Pony, Polly Parrot and Zoe Zebra help them find their treasure as they all enjoy a day of adventure.

PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT features delightful true-to-life puppets and some of Australia's most talented musical theatre performers.

Young Peppa Pig fans in Australia are enchanted with the perfect sing-along-songs and new adventures that end happily with loud snorts of laughter.

Naturally, mums and dads are loving the show too!
