This is Bluey’s Big Play! And it’s really for real life!

We sadly had to cancel the last few performances of the January 2021 Bluey season due to the recent Greater Brisbane three-day lockdown. Since then, together with the producers, we’ve been determined to find a way to bring Bluey back to our stage sooner rather than later. We’re thrilled that Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show will return to QPAC for a strictly limited season from 5 to 7 February 2021, before the Bluey crew head off on their national tour.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public Wednesday, 20 January 2021 at 9am

When Dad feels like a little bit of Sunday arvo time out, Bluey and Bingo have other plans! Join them as they pull out all of the games and ingenuity at their disposal to get Dad off that bean bag.

Bluey's Big Play is a brand-new theatrical adaptation of the Emmy® award-winning children's television series, with an original story by Bluey’s creator Joe Brumm, and new music by Brisbane's Beethoven and Bluey composer, Joff Bush.

Join the Heelers in their first live theatre show created just for you, featuring brilliantly created puppets, this is Bluey as you’ve never seen it before, brought to real life!
