Following six consecutive Christmas seasons in London’s West End and multiple UK and international tours, the joyful adaptation of Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling book, Stick Man, is back on the road again for another enchanting UK tour.
‘Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three…’.
But the world outside the family tree is a dangerous place for Stick Man. What starts off as a
morning jog becomes quite the misadventure – a dog wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a
nest with him and he even ends up on a fire! How will Stick Man ever get back to the family tree?
Touching, funny and utterly original, this fantastic production features a trio of top actors and is
packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.
Stick Man is produced by the recently founded Freckle Productions – the team behind Tiddler and
Other Terrific Tales. Freckle’s shows aim to be vigorous and challenging; firing the imaginations of
young audiences who may be experiencing theatre for the very first time but also changing the
awareness of what performance can be for regular followers.
Producer Jennifer Sutherland comments, Freckle Productions are delighted to be taking everyone’s
favourite stick man back on the road for an exciting autumn and winter tour, in co-production with
Scamp Theatre. The Stick Man family will be going north to south and east to west, bringing one of
Julia Donaldson’s most loved books to life.
Age recommendation All ages welcome. Enquire at venue box office for babes in arm policy.
