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 The Scarecrows’ Wedding, features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.

Most suitable for all aged 3+ but all ages welcome.

★★★★★ ‘Wonderfully exuberant and imaginative! Our 3 year old was engrossed from start to finish’Time Out Critics’ Choice

 ★★★★ 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’ – The 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

 STICK MAN Live is the latest production to be added to Tyne Theatre & Opera House’s programme of children’s shows for 2018, and will be the third Julia Donaldson stage adaptation of the year, after the wonderful Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales in April and the upcoming What the Ladybird Heard from Friday 8th – Saturday 10th June.

Tyne Theatre & Opera House Director Joanne Johnson says: “I’m so thrilled to welcome back STICK MAN Live to the Tyne Theatre stage! When Scamp Theatre brought the show to the theatre in October 2017 it was absolutely delightful, and I hope this gives people who missed it the first time another chance to catch it. I also can’t wait to see Julia Donaldson’s What the Ladybird Heard brought to life in June – as a mum I’m a big fan of her wonderful books”.
