Touching, funny and utterly original, Scamp Theatre’s delightful adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s STICK MAN is coming to back to Middlesbrough Theatre!
What starts off as a morning jog becomes quite the misadventure 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?
This award-winning production, from the team behind The Scarecrows’ Wedding, features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.
Most suitable for all aged 3+
Tickets £13 / Schools £10 (Including Booking Fee)
School Bookings please contact the Box Office on 01642 81 51 81

About Middlesbrough Theatre
Middlesbrough Theatre has quite a remarkable history. From it’s conception in the late 1920’s to its opening as the first architect-designed theatre to be built after the Second World War – it is the result of a 27-year dream and the unswerving dedication of theatre lovers in Middlesbrough.
Middlesbrough Theatre has an intimacy that belies its 486 seat capacity. A winning combination that has enabled the theatre to play host to a wide variety of performances from big bands and stand-up comedy to full-scale amateur musicals and Indian dance.
Middlesbrough Theatre continues to serve its community hosting performances from leading actors and renowned companies as well as by providing first class facilities to local amateur operatic and dramatic societies as well as young students from local dance schools and performing arts colleges.
