Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s Stick Man to Play at Leicester Square

The joyous stage adaptation of Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling book, Stick Man, is coming to Leicester Square Theatre. In brief, the said production will run from 21st October 2017 to 7th January 2018.

The play follows the story of the Stick Man, whose morning jog became a misadventure. Of course, kids and their parents will have to find out how he will get back to the family tree.

Touching and funny, this production features puppetry, songs, live music, and funky moves. Meanwhile, casting is yet to be announced.

Furthermore, Stick Man is produced by the recently founded Freckle Productions, the same team behind Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales, and Scamp Theatre.

Meanwhile, the production is directed by Sally Cookson, composed by Benji Bower, designed by Katie Sykes, and lighting by Elanor Higgins.
