Bringing the family to see Bluey live on stage? Here’s some helpful info to make your trip to the Norwich Theatre Royal smooth sailing for you and your little one:

What’s the show about? 

Bluey’s Big Play is a brand new show based on the popular TV series. When Dad wants to relax, Bluey and Bingo have other plans! They use their imagination and games to get Dad up and playing with them.

How is a cartoon brought to life on stage? 

The show uses amazing sets and puppets to bring the world of Bluey to life!

Is the show interactive? 

There are moments where the audience can join in the fun, but it’s also perfectly fine if your child wants to sing or cheer along throughout the show.

How long is the show?  

The show is about 50 minutes long with no interval.  

Who can come see the show?  

Anyone can come and see Bluey little kids, big kids and even those who don’t want to come but secretly do.   

Can we meet Bluey?  

While Bluey will be on stage, you won’t be able to meet the characters after the show. Please don’t allow children to climb on the stage, it is very dangerous.  

What to expect before the show  

The foyer and bar areas can get busy, depending on when you arrive. There’s more space to wait upstairs, and a quieter breakout space in the meeting room if needed.  

When taking your seats you might have to climb stairs.  

What about the lights?  

The lights will dim slowly to avoid startling anyone.  

Can we move around during the show?  

Absolutely! If your child needs to get up and move, you both can. You can walk down the aisle or take them of auditorium.  There are  screens around the building showing the live feed of the show, so you won’t miss anything. You can always return to your seat when you’re ready.  

Storing buggies 

Buggies and strollers can be stored in the foyer under the stairs. Please collapse them to save space for others.

Baby changing facilities 

There are baby changing facilities in all accessible toilets, with plenty of space and a pull-down changing table.

Food and drinks 

You can buy drinks and snacks from the theatre’s bars, but you’re also welcome to bring your own snacks and drinks.

Breakout space  

There’s a breakout space in the meeting room upstairs from the foyer if you need a quieter space during your visit.
