Bluey’s Big Play
The stage show

6:30 pm Thursday, September 7, 2023

When Dad feels like a little bit of Sunday afternoon time out, Bluey and Bingo have other plans. Join them as they pull out all of the games and cleverness 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 creator Joe Brumm and new music by Bluey composer Joff Bush.

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

Bluey’s Big Play, “a glorious celebration of everything you love about the show” (The Guardian), is presented by BBC Studios and Andrew Kay in association with Windmill Theatre Co.


American Sign Language interpretation will be provided for this performance. Contact the Arts Ticket Center via email at artstix@psu.edu or by calling 814-863‑0255 to discuss ASL seating preferences.
