Bluey's Big Play- The Stage Show

Client: BBC Studios and Andrew Kay in association with Windmill Theatre Co.

In 2020, our team built a series of sophisticated puppets, props and sets for Australia’s new theatrical adaption of the Emmy award-winning children’s television series; Bluey.

Bluey’s Big Play- The Stage Show kicked off the Australian wide tour in December 2020, receiving impressive 5 star reviews from both audiences and critics.

The show comes alive with five large-scale puppets, (Bluey, Bingo, Bandit and Lucky’s Dad) each having unique hand-engineered mechanisms that translate their onscreen personalities to stage.

The bespoke main puppets were hand-sculpted, clocking in over 6,000 hours of hand-stitching alone.

The core team of 9 also created just over 70 hand-made props (some electrical), smaller puppets and sets; all during a global pandemic.

“The puppetry in this performance is amazing, with plenty of emotion being conveyed via the characters faces, with the help of the puppeteers. The backdrops and set are bright and colourful and in keeping with the television show.”

“A glorious celebration of everything you love about the show has been woven into a touching new story – for real life”
