Ever since we saw Stick Man Live In The West End for the first time when Florence was tiny, it’s been a ‘must do’ for us when it comes around each year!
This year we kicked off our Christmas season of fun in London with a trip to the Leicester Square Theatre and it was the perfect way to begin!
We know the show, we know the songs, we even know the actors as usually there is at least one cast member reprising their role from a previous year and yet we never, ever, tire of it!
Scamp Theatre do an amazing job wth all of their productions, we’ve never found one we don’t enjoy! However, Stick Man, for us, is the best! It may be because it’s the first one we saw from the production company but I really think it just has a special magic like no other…
‘Stick Man, lives in the family tree, with his stick lady love and their stick children, one, two, three!’ And that’s how the song goes! Watch this little taster video to hear the Stick man song and you’ll be singing it too – It’s amazing! I must see if we can get all of them on a CD, the children would LOVE that!
I love how everything is so slick in this show from the sound and music (one actor, in his time in Stick Man, plays many parts) to the perfect choreography which the three performers execute perfectly!
We love the book but the show is even better and they don’t miss a single thing! Not one! It’s actually like the pages of the Julia Donaldson favourite just come alive on the stage.
At the show this year we met up with our good friends at ModernMummy and they, seeing it for the first time, loved it too. Don’t forget ModernMummy, FamilyFourFun, MummyEndeavours and I are playing #SantasLittleHelpers and running a HUGE competition at the moment to #WinChristmas. A Stick Man family ticket is one of the prizes (one of the BEST prizes if you ask me – wish I could win and go again) so you simply MUST enter!
Stick Man Live In The West End is showing at the Leicester Square Theatre from now until 3rd January 2016 and it is also showing at Edinburgh’s Christmas – St Andrew’s Square until the 29th November. A family ticket costs £55 and can be booked here.
We went to see the show as guests of the theatre in return for an honest review.
