Energetic, excitable, and endlessly curious – what’s not to love about Bluey? The adorable pup and her family first shot to fame in 2018 and have since become nothing short of a global phenomenon for children and adults.


Now, Bluey is bringing Bandit, Chilli and Bingo into the real world for a brand-new theatre show: Bluey’s Big Play.

Coming to over 30 theatres in the UK and Ireland in 2024, Bluey’s Big Play is an original stage show written by the creator of the TV series, Joe Brumm.

Featuring puppets, sets, and new music by Bluey composer, Joff Bush, this show is set to be a magical experience for kids and parents alike. The audience will get to see “Bluey brought to real life as you’ve never seen it before.”

The tour is coming to the UK after already making waves in the US and in Bluey’s home of Australia, where it was seen by nearly one million fans. While Down Under, the show performed nearly 450 times across 65 venues before going stateside to take on the likes of Madison Square Garden in New York, the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, and the Chicago Theatre.

What is Bluey’s Big Play about?

Bluey’s Big Play is an entirely new story from the minds of the Australian TV show.

Starring none other than Bluey herself, the show sees the eager puppy and her sister, Bingo, trying to get their dad, Bandit, to play with them. As you can expect, a lot of hijinks and games ensue.

If you want a bit more information, here’s the full synopsis: “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 of the games and cleverness at their disposal to get Dad off that bean bag.”

The show is suitable for all ages and once the performance is over, kids and parents alike will be invited to join in a game of keepy-uppy in the theatre as a number of inflatable balls are thrown into the audience.

Bright, colourful and fun for all ages, this show will be one to remember.
