The stage adaption of Julia Donaldson’s Stick Man has announced an autumn tour, West End run and festive seasons.

From Freckle Productions and inspired by the book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler, the show will start a 3-month UK Tour at The Capitol Theatre, Horsham on Saturday 4 September.


Then on Saturday 23 October, Stick Man returns to Leicester Square Theatre for its 10th annual West End season, playing for 10 weeks until Monday 3 January.

And finally, Stick Man will play three more Festive Seasons, coming to The Lowry, Salford from Tuesday 30 November to Sunday 9 January 2022, the Minerva Theatre, Chichester from Friday 10 to Friday 24 December, and Birmingham Town Hall from Sunday 26 December to Sunday 9 January 2022.

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, Old Vic Theatre), design by Katie Sykes (Jane Eyre, National Theatre), lighting by Elanor Higgins (Private Peaceful, UK Tour) and music by Benji Bower (A Monster Calls, Old Vic Theatre).

The cast for the Autumn Tour and the Chichester and Birmingham seasons features Tyler Ephraim as Stick Man, Clair Gleave as Stick Lady Love and Lawrence Cole as Actor-Musician.

The cast for Leicester Square Theatre features Richard Chalk-Iles as Stick Man, Safeena Ladha as Stick Lady Love and Elliott Rennie as Actor-Musician.

The cast for The Lowry, Salford features Jordan Louis-Fernand as Stick Man, Alice Imelda as Stick Lady Love and Jonathan Ainscough as Actor-Musician.
