Bluey | Students on Broadway


Bluey’s Big Play The Stage Show is the first-ever theatrical adaptation of the television series. The play features an original story by Bluey creator Joe Brumm, new music by award-winning Bluey composer Joff Bush and brilliantly crafted life-size puppets and sets. The show made its global premiere in Brisbane, Australia, where the tour went on to break box office records for children’s entertainment all over the country. Hailed as “a glorious celebration” of everything fans love about the show (The Guardian), it’s Bluey as fans have never seen it before, brought to real life. Bluey’s Big Play was produced by BBC Studios and HVK Productions in association with Windmill Theatre Co.




The team at Broadway Utica set a goal to invite 500+ students to the AM performance of Bluey’s Big Play through the Students on Broadway Program on March 29, 2023 at 10:30 a.m. For Broadway Utica to achieve this goal, we will need your support. The average ticket price to send a student to the theater for Bluey is $39.00 per student. Every dollar helps.


One of Broadway Utica’s missions is to make a difference in the lives of the youth of this community. “We have the opportunity to make a direct impact on the lives of the children that live in the surrounding area of the beautiful Stanley Theatre. With Broadway Touring productions coming through the City of Utica on a regular basis, it only makes sense to find a way to offer the experience of live theatre to as many students as we can.”  said Kristen Matteson, Youth Programs Coordinator at Broadway Theatre League of Utica.

Through Broadway Utica’s Students on Broadway Program, students are invited to see a production that they otherwise would not have the opportunity to attend. The hope is to spark an interest and/ or light up a fire inside leading them to the world of theatre. The theatre offers so many opportunities to all; a career, a different outlook on life, emotions that you never imagined feeling, creating bonds with others, education, but more importantly the theatre can bring you to another place without leaving your seat. A place filled with adventure, joy and a few hours of serenity. 

Like Bluey, Broadway Utica wants to bring a world of fun to this community. Join us in making a real difference for the youth who will truly benefit from feeling the joy and serenity that being in a theatre exudes.  No donation is too small.
