The 13-Storey Treehouse will hold its UK premiere in London ahead of a tour in 2020.
The play by Richard Tulloch is adapted from the bestselling book by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton.
The premiere UK production will open at the Alexandra Palace Theatre in London, running from 30 July through to 23 August 2020, following previews at the Capitol Theatre, Horsham (16-18 July). The play will then head out on a UK Tour.
It follows sold out seasons across the world in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, The USA and The Netherlands.
The 60-minute play will be brought to life across the UK for children 5+ and their families by a seriously funny cast with magical moments of theatrical wizardry, physical comedy and a tree-load of imagination!
A teaser reads: “Enter the mad-cap, fun world of Andy and Terry! The one and only, super-famous, ultra-brilliant The 13-Storey Treehouse is now a stage show…there’s just one problem – Andy and Terry have forgotten to write it! Where will they find flying cats, a mermaid, a sea monster, an invasion of monkeys and a giant gorilla?”
Andy Griffiths said: “Terry and I have been thrilled and amazed to see the Treehouse series capture the imagination of children in more than 35 countries over the past decade. And now we are especially excited that The 13-Storey Treehouse stage show is coming to the UK.
“This rambunctious, joyfully silly production is very faithful to the spirit of the original book and we hope that this show about making a show about a book about making a book delights both adults and children in the UK as much as previous productions in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Singapore and The Netherlands.”
The cast and creative team for the show is to be announced.
