Former Children's Laureate Julia Donaldson's book, Stick Man, will be performed at Weston Playhouse by Freckle Productions this month.

The tale will take children on a journey through Stick Man's misadventures after a morning jog as he tries to find his way back home through the woods.

He comes up against challenges along the way, including confronting a dog which wants to play fetch with him, a swan builds a nest with him, and he even ends up on a fire, all in a quest to return to the family tree.

Freckle Productions has also released four productions based on Donaldson's book, including Tiddler And Other Terrific Tales, Tabby McTat and Zog.

The show features a trio of actors and is set to be packed-full of puppetry, songs and live music.

Donaldson's Stick Man was released in 2008 by Macmillan Publishers and artwork illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

Freckle Productions was founded by Jennifer Sutherland in 2016.

The tour was announced following the success of eight consecutive Christmas seasons in London's West End.
