Stevin John, the creator, writer and creative force of Blippi, does not appear in the live show. In the musical, the character will be played by professional stage performers selected by Stevin John.

"I won't be on the road, but I am obviously extremely involved with the whole process," said John to Billboard Magazine.

Tour organizers say Blippi has taught millions of kids colors, letters, how to count,  and more. Children across the world have quickly taken to Blippi’s charismatic personality and innovative teaching lessons. In the live show they will continue to learn about the world around them while singing and dancing along with this one-of-a-kind show.
