Sticky adventures at Hull New Theatre

With more fun than you can shake a stick at Hull New Theatre presents a glorious adaptation of a much-loved children’s book later this year.

Stick Man the touching, funny and utterly original production of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s woody character hits the stage for a three-night run from 7 November.

The story begins with a morning jog and soon becomes a series of misadventures starting with being pounced on by a playful dog. Mistaken for an ordinary stick, the hero is swept far away, being used for all sorts of things: from a flag mast to a cricket bat, a snowman’s arm and 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 Tiddler and other Terrific Tales, Tabby McTat and Zog features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.

This heart-warming tale of family, courage and adventure promises to deliver joy for children and adults alike.
