Adams, MA Native Set To Return To His Hometown In Peppa Pig LIVE!: Peppa Pig's Big Splash

Adams, Massachusetts native, actor and Emmy Award-winning broadcaster, Evan M. Pinsonnault, will return to a regional stage next month, though many of his friends and fans might not immediately recognize him.


Pinsonnault, who's known by his stage name, Evan Michael, is currently playing the roles of "Daddy Pig," "Mr. Bull" and "Danny Dog" in the interactive musical live show, Peppa Pig LIVE!: Peppa Pig's Big Splash, inspired by the characters and stories from the popular British animated children's television show. In the U.S., the program airs on Nickelodeon and Nick Jr.

The stage show splashes down in Springfield for the final performance in its spring 2017 tour at Symphony Hall in Springfield at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 7. This is the show's first tour through the U.S. and Canada, and Pinsonnault has previously toured with the production across more than 90 international cities.

Pinsonnault is a 2001 graduate of Hoosac Valley High School, where he performed in a number of theatrical productions. He is the son of Bernie Pinsonnault and stepson of Dianne Cutillo of Adams and of Jan Charbonneau and Stan Spencer of Lenox. When he is not touring, the actor resides in Los Angeles and has also enjoyed gigs as a comedian, television anchor and broadcaster, show host, and writer.

In a September 2016 interview with Georgia arts and entertainment publication, "DoSavannah," Pinsonnault said his career has been inspired by his hometown region.

He told the interviewer, "I grew up in western Massachusetts in Berkshire County. It's such a great community for the arts. ... I just remember all these great times of going to see live theater at such a young age."

After graduating from George Washington University with a degree in political science and theater, Pinsonnault earned a master's degree in broadcasting and communication from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. He began his career as a television reporter and anchor, working in upstate New York, Washington, D.C., Georgia and Michigan, while performing in theatrical productions on the side. While in Michigan, he created, produced and hosted a variety program, The Evan Michael Show, which prompted his move to L.A., to further explore opportunities on stage and screen.
