Mr. Men & Little Miss has been adapted into a brand new live show, which will tour the UK this summer and beyond, kicking off at the Underbelly Edinburgh Fringe next month.

The brand-new show, the first for the brand in recent memory, comes from two of the country’s leading family theatre producers: Selladoor Family, which recently toured Madagascar the Musical and James and the Giant Peach, and New York-based Rockefeller Productions, the creators of The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show and Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Show.

“It has been a very long time since the Mr Men and Little Misses have had their own live show so we are very excited to see the characters come to life,” says Sabrina Segalov, Senior Licensing Manager at brand owner Sanrio. “Rockefeller are the perfect partner to work with on this and have really captured the essence of the characters and the humour of the brand.”  


Featuring Mr Bump, Little Miss Sunshine, Mr Tickle, Little Miss Inventor and many more, the show will bring Roger Hargreaves’ famous characters to life in a series of hilarious and colourful stories told through puppetry and music.

Alexander Parker lead producer for Selladoor Family adds: “We’re delighted to be joining Underbelly to bring a new and exciting live theatre experience to the next generation of Fringe goers! Selladoor Family is committed to engaging young people in theatre and strongly believe these experiences help to develop a sense of imagination, playfulness and confidence.”
