Help Fund My Children’s Musical Theatre Show!

Just a few months ago I launched a crowdfunder to help bring my children’s musical theatre show – Fred: The Musical – to life.

The show is based on my popular rhyming picture book Fred The Fire-Sneezing Dragon (2017) and tells the tale of a lovable young dragon whose fiery sneezes cause chaos at school. Fred is teased by his classmates, until he accidentally saves the day.

Aimed at children aged from 3 to 10 years, Fred: The Musical has an all-rhyming script and sing-along songs in a lively mix of musical styles. The show draws on pantomime traditions, with lots of audience participation in songs, actions and dance.

After reaching my initial target on (Hurray! Thank you all for your donations!)
