Bluey will be brought to life on the stage in Brisbane, with a new puppeteer pulling the strings of the precocious pup.
The stage production of the much-loved family animation debuted at QPAC last year and is back by popular demand, running until Sunday with special performances next weekend.
Jessa Konic, from Melbourne, is new to the role of Bluey, having missed out on playing the role previously due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“It’s very nerve-wracking at the best of times,” Ms Konic said.
“To be honest, I didn’t know who Bluey was before I came on the show so doing all my research and finding out that this character is such a beautiful girl who is finding her way through life.”
Set in Brisbane, the popular Australian animated TV series centres on six-year-old Blue Heeler pup ‘Bluey’ and her family.
Written for preschool children, the show’s themes include family, the importance of imaginative play, modern-day parenting, and Aussie lifestyle and humour.
It has won numerous industry awards and is adored by children, parents and grandparents alike.
“When Bluey skips on stage for the first time there’s always a cheer and roar from the crowd,” director Jacob Williams said.
