WHEN Peppa Pig Live in South Africa, in partnership with black, comes to the Port Elizabeth PE Opera House from June 22 to June 24, one cast member is likely to feel very at home.

Port Elizabeth’s own Ashleigh Butcher takes on the roll of Peppa’s human friend, Anna – the show’s singing and dancing storyteller.

Fans of the ever-popular Peppa and George Pig are in for a treat as the siblings, together with all their special friends, including favourites Suzy Sheep, Danny Dog and Pedro Pony, embark on their fantastical adventure in the much-anticipated stage show.

Butcher, a talented musical theatre graduate who has performed in award-winning shows around South Africa, is the perfect addition to this brand-new adventure.

Polly Parrot and Mr Dinosaur have vanished, leading Peppa, George, Mummy and Daddy Pig to embark on an incredible journey to find the missing duo.

As always, Peppa’s friends are on hand to help in the hunt.

Owing to the popularity of Peppa Pig and overwhelming public demand for tickets, additional family discount packages have been released with seats available from just R149 when booking four or more tickets at specific shows.

General public ticket sales and family packages as well as exclusive VIP packages are available at Computicket. Peppa Pig Live in South Africa will have fans laughing, cheering and dancing, just like Peppa.

This fully immersive musical production, featuring favourite songs along with incredible life-sized puppets and beautifully costumed characters, brings Peppa Pig to life like never before.

Look out for those muddy puddles, it’s time to see Peppa, George and friends live on stage for the first time ever.
