Children in Cape Town are in for some serious laughing, cheering and dancing in the theatre these school holidays with the staging of the popular, “Peppa Pig Live in South Africa”, at the Convention Centre in the Mother City.

The organisers say those young at heart will enjoy the life-sized puppets, the beautifully costumed characters and their favourite songs from the show.

In this new adventure, the Piggies embark on a fantastical adventure with their special animal friends to find Polly Parrot and Mister Dinosaur, who have disappeared.

The international show based on the popular television series will also be staged in Durban, Pretoria and Port Elizabeth after the short Cape Town run.
