Bluey bound for Horsham

A Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show Victorian tour will visit Horsham on July 13.

A new theatrical adaptation of the award-winning children’s television series, the show, at Horsham Town Hall, features an original story by Bluey creator Joe Brumm and new music by Bluey composer, Joff Bush.

BBC Studios and Andrew Kay in association with QPAC’s Out of the Box and Windmill Theatre Co is presenting Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show, which stars the Heeler family, Bluey, Bingo, Bandit and Chilli.

The production comes to life via puppets, directed by puppetry director Jacob Williams.

Show director Rosemary Myers said the production team was looking forward to the tour.

“Like the rest of Australia, we love Bluey and it’s a thrill and privilege to bring these brilliant characters into the three-dimensional world,” she said. 

Bluey, with a fan base including parents as well as children, rates as the most-watched series to have been presented on ABC iview.

The iview channel has more than 480-million plays across Bluey’s first two seasons. 

In June 2019, BBC Studios struck a global broadcast deal with Disney to premiere Bluey in all territories outside Australia, New Zealand and China.

The Australian-grown animated series has had critical success in Australia and globally, winning a Logie Award for Most Outstanding Children’s Program in 2019, an AACTA Award for Best Children’s Program  in 2019 and 2020 and an International Emmy Kids Award in a pre-school category in 2020.

Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show has support from Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand Fund.
