Calling all Bingsters. Bing and his friends are on tour in the first ever Bing stage show! CBeebies favourite Bing Live! is coming to Greenwich Theatre as part of a major premiere UK tour, writes Laura Burgoine…

Join Bing, Sula, Coco and Pando as they learn how to tell stories on stage 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.

Bing Live! is 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.

The show’s puppet designer Tahra Zafar is best known for her work on the films Star Wars VII The Force Awakens, X Men-First Class, and Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Bing is the number one pre-school show on BBC iPlayer. Celebrating the joyful, messy reality of preschool life, Bing finds the big stories in the smallest moments, whether it’s dropping your ice-cream or losing your favourite toy.
