School Play is the fifty-second and final episode of the first series of Peppa Pig.
Peppa and her friends put on a performance for school, involving the story of Little Red Riding Hood.
At school, everyone is being told what play they will be putting on. They all need to practice at home and they have all been assigned parts; with Peppa playing the lead. At home she is instructed on what she has to do, in order to make sure she knows what she has to do.
Danny Dog meanwhile, is playing the Big Bad Wolf. Grandad Dog and Mummy Dog are instructing him on how to make a better impression that seems realistic to the audience. Pedro will be in charge of playing the Hunter and will be the one to rescue Peppa, but he is a little shy and hesitant. Rebecca will be in charge of playing the Grandmother, she appears at the beginning and end of the play, and only has one line but she seems to be fine with it.
Eventually the day of the play comes and it begins. Madame Gazelle instructs everyone not to use any photography after everyone is introduced to them, then the play begins.
The visitor, the big bad wolf appears. But he ends up forgetting his line until being reminded, then he makes Rebecca, as the grandma go into the cupboard. Peppa then appears and proceeds to play her role, stopping once to scold Daddy for using his camera when he was told not to. She continues and runs into Danny, as the wolf. They then wait for Pedro to appear and save Grandma from the cupboard and Pedro tells the wolf how naughty he has been. The play then ends as everyone cheers and Peppa compliments Pedro for a job well done.
