CBeebies favourite Bing! Goes to the Theatre

Calling all Bingsters! Bing and his friends are going on tour in the first ever Bing stage show!

CBeebies favourite Bing! Goes to the Theatre

Bing Live! will visit Oakengates Theatre @ The Place on Tuesday 26 and Wednesday 27 June as part of a major UK tour in 2018.
Join Bing, Sula, Coco and Pando as they learn how to tell stories by pretending, dressing-up and singing songs. Flop and Amma are there to help, but in this magical world of make-believe things don’t always go according to plan…
The CBeebies favourites are brought to life in a brand new stage production full of fun, laughter, music and magical puppetry.  Bing Live! is the perfect first theatre trip for pre-schoolers and their families.
Going to the theatre… it’s a Bing thing!
Bing Live! is produced by Minor Entertainment (In the Night Garden Live) and directed by Will Tuckett, guest principal character artist of the Royal Ballet, whose production of Wind in the Willows won an Olivier Award for Best Entertainment in 2014.

Since its launch on CBeebies, Bing has been a huge ratings hit and it’s the number one top rated pre-school show on BBC iPlayer. Celebrating the joyful, messy, reality of preschool life, Bing finds the big stories in the smallest moments that little ones and the grown-ups in their lives will recognise…whether it’s dropping your ice-cream or losing your favourite toy.

The series has won an International Emmy Award in the Kids’ Pre-School category in 2016, a Writer’s Guild Award and a BAFTA nomination for Best Pre-School Series. The animated series, which saw Mark Rylance make his children’s television debut voicing Flop, is produced by Acamar Films.       
                                                                                                  
Andrew Collier, Creative Director of Minor Entertainment, said “We’re thrilled to be bringing Bing to the stage - we know families throughout the UK love Bing as much as we do, and we can’t wait to see children’s faces light up when they meet him at the theatre for the first time.”

Mikael Shields, CEO of Acamar Films and producer of Bing said: “Seeing Bing take a leap from the screen to the stage is hugely exciting for all of us at Acamar.  We are thrilled to be working with Minor Entertainment to bring the 'Bing Live' shows to our young audience. Introducing Bing fans to possibly their first experience of theatre is a tremendous creative challenge and Minor has shown imaginative flair, exceptional attention to detail, and their passion for bringing preschool characters to life has been evident throughout our collaboration with them. We can’t wait to watch the reaction from Bingsters to seeing Bing and Flop on stage next year.”
