The Baddies tour

Currently touring until 3 November 2024

A stage adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler's smash-hit 2022 story. 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...

All about the show

The theatre show has a running time of approximately one hour. The age recommendation is 3+ but all ages welcome.

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.”
