Children’s TV favourite Postman Pat will be making an extra round in Stevenage next month, following the addition of a new show.
Due to phenomenal demand, the Gordon Craig Theatre is putting on an additional performance of Postman Pat Live – It’s Showtime! on Sunday, March 2 at 3.30pm.
Postman Pat is the longest running animated series in the country, first airing in 1981 on the BBC.
And later this year he is set to become a huge movie star, with the release of his first feature film that includes the voice talents of former Dr Who David Tennant and Kimpton’s Harry Potter star Rupert Grint.
To whet your appetite for the residents of Greendale, this new stage show is the perfect production for fans young and old alike, as well as being a great introduction to the theatre for young children.
In Postman Pat Live, it’s the day of the Great Greendale Talent Show and there’s much excitement as this year a top talent scout will be on the lookout for a rising star.
Postman Pat has a new karaoke machine to deliver for the show. But when the machine breaks down it looks like the talent show might be in jeopardy.
Can Pat save the day? Which of your favourite characters will take part? And who has a ‘golden’ voice that the big name judge might notice?
Starring alongside Postman Pat will be favourites Ted Glen, Mrs Goggins, Ajay, Amy and, of course, Pat’s trusted sidekick Jess, the Black and White Cat.
With plenty of audience participation and new songs, together with new scenery and costumes, Postman Pat Live – It’s Showtime! offers lots of fun and excitement for the whole family.
It takes to the stage in Stevenage, Hertfordshire, on Sunday, March 2 at 1pm and 3.30pm.
Tickets cost £14 for adults, £12 for children and a family ticket for four costs £45.
