Time Out says

This live touring production inspired by Bluey's Adventures has been postponed

PLEASE NOTE: The tour of Bluey's Big Adventure has been postponed, with new dates later in the year being arranged. All tickets already purchased will be transferrable to the new dates.

Kids have a habit of being glued to a screen, so when you're in search of a way to crowbar that iPad out of their hands, what could be better than a live-action version of their fave show? Much-adored by little'uns and parents alike, BBC Studios animated series Bluey, which follows the adventures of a blue heeler pup and her family, is taking bold steps into three-dimensional reality with a new stage production, Bluey’s Big Play.

Transporting these cartoon characters from the TV to stage, it’ll star Bluey, her little sister Bingo and their parents as they play make-believe in the Brisbane suburbs, using their imagination to learn about the world around them. This new, original story is a love letter to family and Australiana. With a mix of puppetry and conventional theatre, your children will be enchanted by the stage magic bringing Bluey to life. What’s more, it’s bound to be award-winningly good: last year, Bluey won a Logie for 'Most Outstanding Children’s Program', and is now nominated for an International Emmy Kids Award.

It's a good indication of the wild popularity of this relative new-comer to children's telly that Bluey’s Big Play will be heading to fifty different venues across Australia, including two in Sydney. Catch Bluey and her antics either at Randwick’s Parade Theatre (7 – 12 July), the Coliseum Theatre in West HQ (14 – 19 July) and the Concourse in Chatswood (21 – 23 July). Standard single tickets are $50.90, prices may vary for group bookings. Giggles, however, are guaranteed.
