'Tree Fu Tom' to Hit the Stage

CBeebies animated series “Tree Fu Tom” will take to the U.K. stage in 2015, in a deal between licensor Fremantle Media Kids & Family Entertainment and Premier Stage Productions.

Premier will produce a 90-mnute live show that will run in U.K. theaters throughout 2015.

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

“Premier Stage Productions is a leading light in producing stand-out children’s theater shows,” says Pindy O’ Brien, vice president, licensing and retail, U.K., FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment. “‘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.”
