Stick Man Live
Newcastle Tyne Theatre & Opera House
Monday 2nd & Tuesday 3rd October 2017



Stick Man © 2008 Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Published by Alison Green Books, an imprint of Scholastic Children’s Books.

Touching, funny and utterly original, Scamp Theatre’s delightful adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s Stick Man is coming to Tyne Theatre & Opera House this October.

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?

This award-winning production, from the team behind Tiddler and other Terrific Tales and The Scarecrows’ Wedding, features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves. Stick Man is most suitable for all aged 3+ but all ages are welcome!

‘Zesty and delightful. A clever compelling treat’ - Independent

'More fun than you can shake a stick at' - Daily Mail

'Julia Donaldson's miniature epic.  Sally Cookson and her team recreate the book with vigour and imagination' - Times

‘Scamp Theatre’s productions are a pleasure for the child in us all’ - Evening Standard
‘Scamp Theatre send shivers down my spine. They are so lively and innovative. I love their production of Stick Man and so do the audiences’ - Julia Donaldson, author and former Children’s Laureate

Tyne Theatre & Opera House Director Joanne Johnson says: “I’m thrilled that we can bring the live stage adaptation of this much-loved children’s tale to the theatre! I’ve read Julia Donaldson’s books including Stick Man to my own children many times, so I can’t wait to see how it will be brought to life on stage by Scamp Theatre. We’ve been expanding our programme of family shows lately: coming up we also have The Wizard of Oz Easter Panto, children’s TV presenter Naomi Wilkinson’s Wild & Scary Show, and Annie the Musical presented by Astravaganza Entertainment. We think a trip to the theatre should be enjoyed by the whole family, so it’s great that we can add Stick Man to these events!”
