The hilarious musings of Tom Gates will be brought to life in a stage show based on Liz Pichon’s best-selling books.

Tom Gates has captured the minds and hearts of millions of schoolchildren with his hilarious antics and comedy doodles about his friends, school and family 

The producers behind Gangsta Granny and the Horrible Histories stage shows have teamed up with acclaimed author and illustrator Liz Pichon to create a brand new story for the stage.

The show is coming to The Playhouse in Weston on June 12-16 and fans will be able to catch up with all the schoolboy's latest antics.

Audiences will be able to see all their favourite characters from the stories including Tom's best friends Derek and Norman and their band Dogzombies.

Tom's doing everything possible to stay out of trouble but somehow he has got three sad faces on the school achievement chart and getting another sad face means he cannot go on the school trip.

Moany Marcus Meldrew is making things worse for him at school and now Tom's annoyed his grumpy sister Delia.

Can his best friend Derek help? And will Rooster the dog stop eating his homework?

There have been 14 books in the series published so far, which have been a huge hit with children aged five to 12.

Pichon's quirky illustrations add to the charm and comedy of the stories and the stage show will enable fans to enjoy even more adventures with their favourite protagonist.

Tickets, priced £15.50-18, can be booked at or on 01934 645544.
