Introducing Fred The Musical

Fred The Musical is a brand new stage show for children based on my book, Fred The Fire-Sneezing Dragon.
Aimed at toddlers and primary school children, the show is packed full of life and laughter, with lots of pantomime-style audience interaction.
Fred The Musical will delight youngsters and their grown ups, potentially providing many young audience members with their first experience of live theatre.

All About The Show
Fred The Musical has a simple all-rhyming narrative and catchy, sing-along songs. The lively musical score features a mix of styles including a full-on power ballad, performed by the show’s leading man – a lovable dragon.
Fred is a lonely young dragon whose fiery sneezes cause chaos at school. He is teased by his human classmates, until he accidentally saves the day. The pupils eventually learn to accept and celebrate Fred, who goes from ‘zero to hero’ in this heartwarming tale.
At the heart of the show are themes of friendship, diversity and inclusivity. Fred The Musical encourages children to accept those that are different and demonstrates that everyone is good at something.



My Vision For Fred The Musical

I’ve written the all-rhyming script, song lyrics and have composed the music for Fred The Musical. Talented US-based musician Kevin Lynch has arranged and produced the piano/vocal score. There’s a show-stealing power ballad for Fred, a boogie-woogie bop, a tango, a folk song, a rock ‘n roll number… a really lively musical mix.

My big vision is to have the show touring UK regional theatres – before its West End/Broadway transfer, obviously!

Fred The Musical has its professional world premiere at the Liverpool Theatre Festival in July 2023. I’ve collaborated with experienced producer Bill Elms to bring the show to the stage, with two live performances taking place on Sunday 23 July.

Fred The Musical will be live on stage at 11.30am and 1.30pm at St Luke’s Bombed Out Church in Liverpool. For further details and booking click here.
