What is the story about?
Stick Man explores and ventures away from his home, when he is is kidnapped by a rambunctious dog. Stick Man loves nothing more than his tree, his family of fellow twigs and early morning jogs.

He’s a Stick Man!
Freckle Productions is adept at adapting Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s classics, including Zog, Tiddler and Tabby McTat.
Stick Man live at Rose Theatre in London review
Anyone with small children will be familiar with the brilliant characters sketched out from the popular duo.
The show is fun, it’s musical, it’s silly and it’s interactive. It’s just perfect for kids, also of young age.
We loved the original songs with catchy lyrics engaging from start to finish
Also, at under an hour, it’s the perfect length for capturing and holding the little ones’ attention and works for four-year-olds or six-year-olds (the latter will get very involved!).
There’s plenty of audience participation for little ones and some puppetry, too – including, of course, the Stick Family in their sycamore tree, in this Freckle Productions’ show.
