Everybody loves “Bluey.”
The animated TV show — which premiered on ABC Kids in Australia in 2018 and has seen become a global sensation in large part due to Disney+ — is technically aimed at preschoolers. Yet, millions of older siblings and, especially, parents are also charmed by the heartwarming and fun tales of Bluey and her family.
Bluey — an energetic blue heeler puppy with a knack for getting her dad to do goofy things — has now moved beyond the small screen and is busy delighting fans with “Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show!”
It’s the first-ever “Bluey” live theater show in the U.S., featuring large-size puppets, live actors and cool stage sets. It also boosts an original story by series series creator Joe Brumm and new music from “Bluey” composer Joff Bush.
“After seeing the amazing reaction the show received during its Australia run, we are delighted to bring this standout live theater show to U.S. audiences,” says 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.”
The show, which runs 45-50 minutes with no intermission, has upcoming dates in both San Jose and San Francisco.
