The London stage production of Julia Donaldson’s Stick Man is now available to stream online until 31 January 2021.
Filmed at the final performance at the Rose Theatre Kingston in December, this made-for-TV version of the stage show features Jamie Coles, Georgina Duncan and Euan Wilson and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.
The filmed production was initially made available to stream for two weeks over the 2020 Christmas period.
Donaldson’s much loved tale is brought to life by Freckle Productions – the team which adapted Zog, Tiddler and other Terrific Tales, and Tabby McTat for the stage.
The show is directed by Mark Kane with original direction by Sally Cookson (A Monster Calls, Old Vic Theatre), design by Katie Sykes (Jane Eyre, National Theatre), lighting by Elanor Higgins (Private Peaceful, UK Tours) and music by Benji Bower (A Monster Calls, Old Vic Theatre).
Donaldson is best known for her popular rhyming stories for children, especially those illustrated by Axel Scheffler, which have sold millions of copies and have been translated into over 80 languages. Her most notable piece, The Gruffalo, has sold over 14-million copies world-wide.
Stick Man was scheduled to run three daily performances from 10 December 2020 until 3 January 2021 at Rose Theatre Kingston, however the run was cut short by the closure of London theatres on 16 December 2020.
Tickets for the stream will be £20 and the show will be available to view for a 24-hour period at any time until 31 January.
Money raised will help support the livelihoods of everyone who was working on the production.
