Presented by Scamp Theatre and Freckle Productions

Under 2s go free when sat on their carers lap.

Touching, funny and utterly original, Scamp Theatre's delightful adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's Stick Man is coming to Bristol Old Vic!

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 Tiddler and other Terrific Tales and The Scarecrows' Wedding, features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves.

Suitable for all ages 3+, but all are welcome!

Wonderfully exuberant and imaginative! Our 3 year old was engrossed from start to finish"


Zesty and delightful... a clever, compelling treat"

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our front of house King Street entrance into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.

Theatre Entrance

You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day Lewis and Miranda Richardson.

Our new Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

Ticket Collection

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.

For more information on accessibility, ticket collection, our Backstage Bar, arrival and drop-off at our Theatre plus updates on our redevelopment, click here.
