Lollipop first produced their adaptation of The Little Gingerbread Man in 2014 and since then have had two more sell out school tours.
“Out of our repertoire of 11 wonderful shows, The Little Gingerbread Man has by far proved to be the most popular” says Lori Dorman Executive Producer and founder of Lollipop Productions.
“It never dates and children from every country and culture just adore our sweet, mischievous little gingerbread character. We don’t play to the audience, we play with them and this show stirs the loudest audience participation I have ever heard and very much more remarkably, manages to silence them in moments of tension.”
