The Tale of Mr Tumble

11-19 July 2015
World premiere  11 July 2015

Starring Justin Fletcher

Known to millions through his appearances on CBeebies, Justin Fletcher made his first bow at the Festival with this funny, engaging and visually exciting show exploring the life and times of Mr Tumble. Written and directed by Will Brenton, and co-starring Ronni Ancona and a fabulous ensemble cast, the show featured a singing and signing choir, which at each performance was drawn from a group of more than 400 schoolchildren from 10 Manchester schools. The thousands of kids in the audience for the show’s 13 performances left in euphoric mood – is there a star in Britain more loved by his fans than Justin Fletcher?

‘Just when you think you’ve reached peak Tumble (or Fletcher, for that matter), this new MIF stage show comes along – and it’s a smasher’ Manchester Confidential

‘What makes the production something extra special is [Justin Fletcher’s] mass Makaton signalong with a choir of kids from Manchester primary schools. No international arts festival can top that’ The Stage
