Premier will produce a 90-minute live show to run in theatres across the UK in 2015, bringing to life the animated adventures of the popular CBeebies series. The brand new production will see Tree Fu Tom bring his mix of magic, movement, action and adventure to the nation’s theatres in this live theatre experience.

Pindy O’Brien, FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment VP Licensing and Retail UK, said: “Premier Stage Productions is leading lights in producing stand-out children’s theatre shows. Tree Fu Tom’s interactive elements lend themselves perfectly to a stage show and we can’t wait to work with Premier to combine our expertise and put on a show to dazzle the show’s many fans across the country.”

Nick George from Premier Stage Productions added: “Premier is delighted to team up with FremantleMedia and the BBC to present the tour. We are convinced the time is right and the appetite is there amongst ticket buyers for a brand new licensed show. Tree Fu Tom lends itself perfectly to a live interactive event and we look forward to taking the show the length and breadth of the UK, whereby Tom will become accessible to his many fans.”

Following Tree Fu Tom’s Westfield mall live tour in February and the launch of the Tree Fu Tom Training Camp at CBeebies Land in Alton Towers this year, the touring theatre show will provide an additional live event experience for fans to interact with the brand.
