Nov 19, 2019

Emmy-nominated phenomenon Bluey will tour nationally with its first ever live stage show, Bluey's Big Play in 2020!


It’s almost time for Bluey fans to get up close and personal with the much-adored Queensland Heeler family! The number one kids show on Australian TV is touring to over 50 theatres across the country, working with Queensland Performing Arts Centre’s (QPAC) Out of the Box for its world premiere in late May 2020.

Join the waitlist at now to see Bluey, Bingo, Bandit and Chilli in the heart-warming world premiere of their first ever live stage show - Bluey's Big Play! Tickets will go on sale in February 2020.

Bluey follows the adventures of an inexhaustible six-year-old Blue Heeler pup, who loves to invent elaborate games and bring her family and the whole neighbourhood into her world of fun.

Bluey's Big Play will bring to life the charmingly everyday world of Australia's favourite TV family. Playful, touching, funny and a little bit cheeky, this theatrical event about big and little sisters, family, and the joy of play, promises to be a delightful experience for children and their grown-ups. For real life!

Bluey’s Big Play is presented by BBC Studios and Andrew Kay in association with QPAC's Out Of The Box.

This home-grown Aussie preschool series first aired on ABC KIDS in October 2018 and has quickly become the number one kids show on Australian TV with, at last count, 152 million views, making it the most watched program in the history of ABC iview.

Bluey also has won a Logie for 'Most Outstanding Children’s Program' in 2019 and was recently nominated for an International Emmy Kids Award. Earlier this year, BBC Studios announced a partnership with Disney which will see the first two series rolling out across the world (excluding Australia, New Zealand and Greater China including Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan). The series is now airing in the US, UK, New Zealand and Greater China.

Bluey is produced by the Emmy® award-winning Ludo Studio for ABC KIDS and is co-commissioned by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios. Both series received production support from the Australian Government through Screen Australia, and Queensland Government through Screen Queensland.

Tickets to the live stage show will go on sale in mid-February. Wackadoo!
