Fans of all ages will get to see Bluey, Bingo, Bandit and Chilli as they've never seen them before. The Heelers will embark on their very first live U.S. theatre show, featuring puppetry, actors and iconic sets. “Bluey's Big Play” is based on an original new story written by “Bluey” creator Joe Brumm and contains new music by “Bluey” composer Joff Bush.
After seeing the amazing reaction the show received during its Australia run, we are delighted to bring this standout live theatre show to U.S. audiences,” said director Rosemary Myers of Windmill Theatre Co.
“We know how much love there is out there for 'Bluey' and are thrilled and honored to translate these brilliant characters into the three-dimensional world and to share this special experience with fans throughout America,” she said.
“Bluey's Big Play” is presented by BBC Studios and Andrew Kay in association with Windmill Theatre Co. The stage show enjoyed much success in its home market of 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.
