Adapted from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s best selling books, Scamp Theatre and Freckle Productions will present Tiddle & Other Terrific Tales at Leicester Square Theatre from the 8th July.
Under the sea, out on the farm and into the jungle, these terrific tales are woven together with live music, puppetry and a whole host of colourful characters from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s best-loved titles: Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze. Funky moves, toe tapping tunes and giggles are guaranteed!
Produced by the newly founded Freckle Productions whose work aims to challenge while engaging hearts and minds of young audiences who might be experiencing theatre for the very first time.

Tiddler & Other Terrific Tales has delighted audiences in London, across the UK and also internationally since 2011 and this production brings the best of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s work together on the stage.”
