John Sparkes, Morwenna Banks, Richard Ridings, Oliver May and Alice May have lent their voices to the other characters.
Soha, whose daughter Inaaya Naumi Kemmu is a big fan of the show, says it was fun watching the musical performance: “Inaaya’s favourite toon is Peppa Pig. In fact, there is not even a day that goes by without her watching Peppa, to the extent that we also enjoy it as a family.
“Peppa just doesn’t offer entertainment only for kids but also imbibes values in them. Which is why we couldn’t have missed this musical! Inaaya had so much fun watching it with her friends.”
Added Neha: “Watching Peppa Pig live today was super exciting. What gave us even more joy was watching our little ones cheer and groove along. We all had a great afternoon.”
