Meet the very worst Baddies in the world! Don’t you dare to come too close to a witch, a troll and an ancient ghost! The Baddies love being bad. They roar, spook and cast wicked spells to try and scare a girl out of her wits…who will succeed? Or perhaps the girl is braver than they think…

A brand-new stage adaptation of The Baddies, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s smash-hit 2022 story, will have its world premiere at The Royal Lyceum Theatre next year, playing in Edinburgh from 4 – 20 October 2024, with a press performance on Tuesday 8 October 2024. The Baddies will then play at the Warwick Arts Centre from 26 – 27 October, and then Rose Theatre Kingston from 29 October – 3 November, with further tour dates to be announced

With songs by Joe Stilgoe (Zog and Zog and The Flying Doctors), The Baddies is a wickedly hilarious adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s smash-hit story. A laugh-out-loud riot for all the family.

Casting, creative team and further tour dates will be announced in due course! So watch this space

Jennifer Sutherland from Freckle Productions said, “Freckle are thrilled and excited to be working with David Greig and the Lyceum Theatre team to create The Baddies and premier the show in such a beautiful theatre in the heart of Edinburgh.”

David Greig, Artistic Director of The Royal Lyceum Theatre said, “The Lyceum is delighted to be working with Freckle Productions again, after the resounding success of Stick Man. We look forward to welcoming a whole new generation of theatre goers to The Lyceum with this Julia Donaldson classic.”

Julia Donaldson said, “I am delighted that The Baddies will be brought wickedly to life on stage next year in Edinburgh by Freckle Productions, who’ve done such fun and inventive things with Zog and Stick Man and my other characters over the years. I’m particularly happy that Joe Stilgoe, with his gift for catchy tunes and clever lyrics, has written the songs for the show, and I feel confident that the result will be a great night at the theatre for kids of all ages.”

Tickets will go on general sale on 31 October via www.TheBaddiesLive.com
