CHILDREN’S favourite Stick Man will be coming to the Hertford Theatre stage next weekend.

“Stick Man lives in the family tree

With his Stick Lady Love

and their stick children three...”

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 book by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, Stick Man will come to life on stage.

Scamp Theatre and Watford Palace Theatre presents Stick Man at Hertford Theatre on Saturday, October 12.

Passing through the seasons and culminating in a joyful Christmas celebration, Stick Man promises more fun than you can shake a stick at and it will delight all branches of the family.

Touching, funny and utterly original, this enchanting adaptation features three actors – Richard Kiess, Alex Tosh and Cassie Vallance – and a one-man-band playing a host of colourful characters and animals to magically re-tell Stick Man’s adventures.

Julia Donaldson is a British writer, playwright and performer, and the prize-winning author of some of the world’s most-loved children’s books, most notably the modern classic The Gruffalo.

She is known for her popular rhyming stories for children, especially those illustrated by Axel Scheffler, including The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, Stick Man and Tiddler and other Terrific Tales.

There are two performances in Hertford, at 1pm and 3pm, but hurry as tickets for the show are going fast. They cost £12, £10 concessions and £40 for a family ticket.
