The Show

Touching, funny and utterly original, Freckle Productions’ delightful adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s Stick Man will be back on stage in 2021.

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, Tiddler and other Terrific Tales, and Tabby McTat features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.



  • ★★★★★ 'Wonderfully exuberant and imaginative! Our 3 year old was engrossed from start to finish'

  • ★★★★ 'Zesty and delightful. A clever compelling Christmas treat'

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

  • ★★★★ 'More fun than you can shake a stick at'


We were completely devastated when we found out that our Stick Man run at Rose Theatre Kingston would have to close after just 10 performances.

19 hours later, our marvellous cast took to the stage for the last time, and together with the Rose, we worked around the clock to film the final performance and transform it into a made-for-TV version of Stick Man for the whole family to enjoy safely at home until the 3rd January.

After such wonderful audience feedback, we’re thrilled to bring the stream back once again, now available until the 31st January!

The stream has a price of £20, which will help support the livelihoods of everyone who was working on the production.

Once you have purchased a ticket, you will receive an email with a link that will grant you access to the stream at any point up to 31 January. However, from the point at which you click the link to view the show, you will only have 24 hours access to the stream. You will be able to view the show as many times as you like within that 24 hour period.

Once you have selected your ticket and clicked 'place your order' you will be required to sign up to TicketCo (the platform we are using to stream this event).

So, grab yourselves a few blankets, pass the bag of popcorn and get cosy for Stick Man on stage... in your living room!

  • 'This was utterly brilliant, can’t recommend highly enough. 3 years, 6 years, 84 years - all loved it!'
