Freckle Productions have announced that Tabby McTat, based on the book by Julia Donaldson with illustrations by Axel Scheffler, returns this week for a Summer/Autumn UK Tour, culminating in a festive season at Fairfield Halls, Croydon from Monday 2 – Saturday 14 December 2019.
Tabby McTat is a busker’s cat with the loudest of meows. He sings all day long with his best friend Fred, until one day they get separated. Tabby finds shelter and a new life with all the home comforts a cat could dream of, but he soon misses his old friend. Will they ever find each other? Brought to life on stage with original songs and Freckle’s distinctive style, Tabby McTat is a heart-warming story of friendship and loyalty.
