Following a number of Christmas seasons in London and numerous UK and international tours, Freckle Productions has announced that Stick Man is to embark on a brand new UK tour – opening at the Wycombe Swan on the 2nd September.

‘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?

Producer Jennifer Sutherland said: “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.”

The production is directed by Sally Cookson and is co-produced by Scamp Theatre and the recently founded Freckle Productions. It stars Christopher Currie, Kate Malyon and Euan Wilson.

Stick Man features designs by Katie Sykes, lighting by Elanor Higgins with costume supervision by Juliette Craft.
