The award-winning Tom Gates series of books are coming to the stage of the Cultural Foundation in Abu Dhabi for the very first time. The producers behind the Olivier Award-nominated Gangsta Granny and the celebrated Horrible Histories stage shows have teamed up with acclaimed author and illustrator Liz Pichon to create a brand-new story exclusively for the stage.
The show follows Tom as he tries to keep out of trouble while things go increasingly wrong at home and school. It features favourite characters from the stories including Tom’s best friends Derek and Norman and their band Dogzombies. It’s not easy to impress Amy Porter, and moany Marcus Meldew is doing his best to disrupt things while their teacher Mr. Fullerman keeps his beady eye on them all. Things aren’t made easier when Tom’s grandparents - The Fossils - announce a big surprise and his Mum, Dad and sister Delia are doing everything to make his life difficult, which means Tom will need all the help he can get to save the day!
Tom Gates is an amazing adventure for all the family, and perfect for children aged 5 to 12.
The show is adapted by Liz Pichon and Neal Foster with music by Mark Flannery, directed by Neal Foster and designed by Jackie Trousdale, with lighting by Jason Taylor and sound by Nick Sagar.
