Tabby McTat


Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is pleased to welcome Freckle Productions back to the stage with their newest show, Tabby McTat. From the children’s book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler this is a show suitable for children and families of all ages.

Tabby McTat is a cat with the loudest of meee-ews and a best friend with a guitar, Fred. Together they sing their favourite songs delighting the crowds, until one day Fred disappears. Separated and alone, Tabby finds shelter and a new life with the home comforts that any cat could dream of. However, memories of his life with Fred haunt him and he sets off to search the streets for his long-lost friend. Interwoven with original songs, Tabby McTat is the heart-warming tale of friendship and loyalty from the team behind Stick Man Live and Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales.

Founded in 2017, Freckle Productions is an independent commercial company that looks to create a wide variety of high quality theatre – for audiences of all ages – as well as working with a wide range of collaborative artists. Tabby McTat was first published in 2010, written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, the team behind several best-selling children’s stories including The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and Stick Man.

Tabby McTat has five performances at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds, Fri 26 – Sat 27 Oct, tickets are on sale at the Box Office, call 01284 769505, book online at or visit the theatre in person.
