Bluey, the beloved series available in Canada on Disney Junior, Disney Channel, Disney+ and STACKTV, follows a six-year-old Blue Heeler dog, who turns everyday family life into extraordinary adventures.
Based on an original new story written by Bluey creator Joe Brumm, Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show also contains new music by Bluey composer, Joff Bush. Audiences of all ages will get to see Bluey, younger sister Bingo and parents Bandit and Chilli, as they’ve never seen them before, when the Heelers embark on their first live theatre show in Canada featuring puppetry, live actors, and iconic sets.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show to Canadian audiences for the very first time,” said director Rosemary Myers of Windmill Theatre Co. “The response to the show from fans across the U.S. and Australia has been nothing short of amazing and we can’t wait for Canadian families to experience all the fun and excitement of having Bluey and her family on stage live in their city.”
Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show is presented by BBC Studios and Andrew Kay in association with Windmill Theatre Co. The stage show enjoyed much success in Australia, where it premiered in Bluey’s hometown Brisbane and went on to perform 447 times across 65 venues, including the Sydney Opera House. The tour is currently in the U.S. where it’s played the Hulu Theatre at Madison Square Garden in New York, the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles and the iconic Chicago Theatre.
