Stick Man is heading to London this Christmas!
Based on the much-loved book by Julia Donaldson (The Gruffalo, Zog) with illustrations by Axel Scheffler, this smash-hit adaptation of Stick Man returns to the West End at the Leicester Square Theatre from 22 October 2022 to 2 January 2023. See here for Stick Man tickets in London.
What starts off as a morning jog becomes quite the misadventure for Stick Man: 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 in time for Christmas? This delightful adaptation from Freckle Productions, the team behind Zog and Tiddler and other Terrific Tales, features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.
Stick Man is directed by Mark Kane with original direction by Sally Cookson (A Monster Calls), design by Katie Sykes (Jane Eyre), lighting by Elanor Higgins (Private Peaceful) music by Benji Bower (A Monster Calls) and musical direction by Brian Hargreaves.
