“Stick Man lives in the family tree with his Stick Lady Love and their stick children three”

Leeds Playhouse is inviting audiences to bring all the branches of their family tree to its Courtyard theatre to see the Stick Man clan this Christmas.

Freckle Productions’ fun festive family show, based on the book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler, runs at the Playhouse from 7-31 December.

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 he ever get back to the family tree in time for Christmas?

This delightful adaptation from the team behind Zog and Tiddler and other Terrific Tales, features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.
