Peppa Pig thrills her fans

LISMORE City Hall was filled yesterday as excited girls, boys and parents turned out for the Peppa Pig Live! Treasure Hunt show.

Children and adults of all ages laughed along as Peppa, George, and their friends went on a puppet show adventure to find the pirate's treasure in the mountains.

Builder Scott Priestley took time off work to bring his daughter to see the Peppa Pig show.

"I took a couple hours off work to come to the show," Mr Priestley said.

"My daughter loves Peppa. She has Peppa everything; blankets, sheets, costumes and toys.

"The opportunity came up, so we had to take her.

"My wife had to work, so I went. I don't mind it."

Promoter Fred Porter of Lifelike Touring said the production was sold out.

"(It was) full to the brim, in both shows," he said.

"We did 60 places up and down the east coast, and we went to the capital cities as well, not just regional places.

"We had a cast of 12, and they all did singing and dancing, as well as acting."

When asked why he did Peppa Pig he replied: "Peppa Pig is hugely popular, it's probably the most popular family television show."

Mr Porter was right, Peppa Pig is very popular.

Everybody was screaming, clapping, singing along, lifting their arms up and yelling "I love Peppa Pig!"

Parents were cradling their children in their laps, sacrificing their comfort just so their child could watch Peppa and have fun.

Everybody had fun, especially the parents who managed to fall asleep in a room full of screaming and wrestling children.

The show is scheduled to continue touring nationally for the rest of this year.
