Bluey the stage show opens
A TV superstar gets his very own big play, at QPAC.
After seven months of delays due to COVID-19 restrictions, Bluey’s Big Play, The Stage Show, has opened at the Playhouse theatre as part of the Out of the Box Festival at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).
With an original story written by series creator Joe Brumm, and new music from composer Joff Bush, the adaptation brings Bluey, Bingo, Bandit and Chilli to life through giant puppets.
Cheese and Crackers!
Bluey has bounced onto the Playhouse stage today… for real life! 🐾

The production is set to play at QPAC until January 10 before embarking on a national tour of 50 towns and cities.
Director Rose Myers said, “We actually started working on the show in March, ready to premiere in May, but like the rest of the performing arts industry, the show was shut down.
“We started in Melbourne, we then moved to Adelaide and there was the outbreak there and we moved rehearsals to Canberra, so it’s been quite a journey.”
