Touching, funny and utterly original, this award-winning production features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves – WIN a family ticket for four with Country Child as the perfect Easter treat for all the family.
“Wonderfully exuberant and imaginative! Our 3 year old was engrossed from start to finish.” (Time Out, Critic’s Choice)
The Stick Man lives in his families’ tree, with his wife and their three children, but the world outside the family tree is a dangerous place 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?
Adapted from the award winning book by Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson MBE, Donaldson’s much-loved rhyming tales have sold millions of copies worldwide and have been translated into 40 languages, sparking the imaginations of children and parents across the globe. Illustrated by Axel Scheffler, The Stick Man is a story close to many families hearts.
“Zesty and delightful… a clever, compelling treat.” (The Independent)
From the award winning team behind Pirate Gran and Private Peaceful, Scamp Theatre create playful and innovative theatrical adaptations to encourage children and young people to use their imaginations. Stick Man is most suitable for children aged 3+ with their friends and families.
“I think the quality of what Scamp do is amazing.” (Michael Morpurgo)
