Review: Stick Man at The Lowry

Have you seen, or read, the tale of Stick Man?  Who hasn’t right?  That’s why this show is a must!

About The Show

Scamp Theatre have brought the magic of Julia Donaldson’s ‘Stick Man’ to life!

We see the much loved character, Stick Man, as he goes for a jog and his encounter with a dog, who wants to play fetch with him.  Following this is a series of unfortunate encounters for Stick Man, including a girl using him in a game of poohsticks, and a Swan making a nest with him!  Stick Man is then swept out to sea ending up far from home, his stick lady love and family of 3.  As the seasons pass, Stick Man meets a surprising friend who might just be able to help him get home.  Will he get back home to the family tree in time for Christmas?

Take a look at the show here:

 

Our Recommendations

The show is full of puppetry, music, quirky songs, and funky moves. It’s intention to draw in the audience works like a treat, with characters coming out into the audience, and the audience get involved in bat and ball!  You’ll even find the weather takes on a wintry scene inside the theatre!

The show is only about 60 minutes long so it’s perfect for youngsters that might struggle to sit still for long periods of time. There is nothing more wonderful than seeing your little one’s face light up, and shouting to the characters “he’s over there”!  It’s definitely a feel-good festive show.

Tickets

The show is running from Saturday 1st December until Sunday 6th January 2019 so don’t miss out!
