New Shows information

18 August 2013 | Kids Live Shows

Peppa Pig Live

Direct from London's West End: PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT takes Australia by storm!

After many shows have sold out, there are some new Peppa Pig show tickets being released - BE QUICK! Tickets sell out like lightening for Peppa Pig! Here is the information, including the shows that are sold out...

Life Like Touring in association with Fiery Light UK are excited to announce the Australian tour of the brand new live children's theatre show, PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT, has been extended due to popular demand. When tickets went on sale last month, the entire Australian national tour sold out, causing havoc at Box Offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth. New shows were announced in Hobart and Canberra, and now further performances will go on-sale in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide at 9am on Monday 19 August.

"We sold-out the entire first national tour of Peppa Pig Live! Treasure Hunt in a just a few days. It was an amazing response to a fantastic show. In 20 years of producing family theatre, I've never seen such an overwhelming response from audiences. One of our ticketing partners compared the response to an on-sale day for Pink or Radiohead. We thought that was pretty cool! We are working with venues to secure new dates and shows all around Australia, and we are being petitioned by fans all over the country to bring Peppa Pig Live to their town. We have a lot of work ahead of us, and our team are working flat-out.

It's Peppa-pandemonium out there!" - Anton Berezin, Producer, Life Like Touring Australia.

Launched on the ABC in 2004, Peppa Pig is now the most popular children's show on Australian TV, screening four times per day and out-rating all other kids show in its time slot. Peppa Pig is also the number one rated children's show downloaded on ABC iView, with a staggering 2 million views per month. Peppa Pig is currently the fastest growing pre-school toy brand and children's DVD franchise in Australia.

Peppa Pig's live theatre show has been performed over 650 times to an audience of more than 650,000 people in the UK, and is at last on its way to fans in Australia for the very first time, direct from the West End.

In this beautiful new theatrical production, Peppa Pig and her friends set off on a treasure hunt. Peppa, her brother George and friend Danny Dog get up to fun and games on a day out on Grandad Dog's boat. There are clues aplenty as Pedro Pony, Polly Parrot and Zoe Zebra help them find their treasure as they all enjoy a day of adventure. Full sail, ahoy!

PEPPA PIG LIVE! TREASURE HUNT features true-to-life puppets, operated by talented puppeteer/ musical theatre performers singing live and forming an integral part of the show. Young Peppa Pig fans in Australia will be charmed and delighted with perfect sing-along-songs and new adventures that end happily with loud snorts of laughter.

Additional performances go on-sale around Australia at 9am on Monday 19 August.

What does it mean to be a single mum?Of course, the


are the most important thing in a single mum's life. Kids are the focus and always have been. But along with the children, there are other matters that can confuse a single mum's life.


plays a big part of a single mother's life, mainly because this is where a large percentage of single mums get their finances from. Centrelink are the source from where the

single mother pension

, or as it is otherwise known, the single parent payment comes from. The single mother pension is a subsistence amount, but just the same, it is money to live on, and so it is important, no matter if it is called single parent payment, single mother pension or whatever Centrelink welfare classes it at the time

Often, single mums come out of a


or defacto relationship only to find that their troubles have just begun, and find that their first step leads them towards Family Law - it's time to engage a lawyer.
There are more than just Centrelink finance problems to worry about, as mentioned before, but also

child custody

issues. Child custody is something that hits right at the heart of

single mums

. If a single mother's ex husband or ex partner has been a domestic violence perpetrator, the mum may be greatly worried about child custody. They worry that their kids won't be safe with their spouse, who has already proven to be abusive because they caused

domestic violence

, which resulted in a divorce or separation.

Even so,

Family Court

will often still order a form of child custody named

Shared Parenting

. Shared Parenting is a form of child custody division of time or parental responsibility between the parents. Mother's often look for a good divorce lawyer to try to avoid share parenting with an abusive ex-spouse after divorce, however in many cases Shared Parenting is still the outcome after the divorce, no matter how good the divorce lawyers have been. They will often settle for visitation at a contact centre or access centre where fathers or mothers are supervised during child custody access.
