Celebrity attendance and strong ticket sales make first-ever Teletubbies live theatre show a huge success
The opening show of the live stage show Teletubbies Live was so well received by celebrities, journalists and influencers, that more dates have been added to the tour.
DHX Brands has announced a number of new dates for the the colourful foursome’s first-ever live stage tour.
Celebrities, journalists and influencers from across the UK – including Coronation Street’s Samia Longchambon; Julie and Tom Malone, popular stars of Channel 4’s hit show,Gogglebox; Stoke and Scotland footballer Charlie Adam; Kelvin Fletcher from ITV soap, Emmerdale; Sarah Jayne Dunn from Hollyoaks; and Luke Burgess, Salford Red Devils rugby league star – were among the fans who flocked to the Manchester Palace Theatre on November 17, for the highly anticipated show.
Parents and children danced and sang along to their favourite songs, as beloved characters Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po took to the stage, for a magical afternoon filled with music, laughter and of course, big hugs!
Samia Longchambon said: “It’s Yves' first time at the theatre – he absolutely loves the Teletubbies so I can’t wait to see the show with him. His father (Sylvain Longchambon) is working and is really upset that he cannot be here.”
“It’s been a great year for Teletubbies as the brand celebrates 20 years of ‘Big Hugs,’ and we couldn’t be any more pleased with the success of their first-ever live theatre show,” said Charlotte Hill, Brand Director, DHX Brands. “Since its launch at the end of 2015, the new series has resonated strongly with young children. We’re delighted to be able to give them a truly entertaining theatre show that enhances the brand experience and supports Teletubbies’ core values of humour, fun, love and exploration.”
Teletubbles Live will tour across the UK and Ireland through to October 2018. Since the initial tour announcement in June 2017, DHX Brands has seen impressive ticket sales and an overwhelming demand for more shows across the country.
