Bananaman – The Musical
by Leon Parris
4 – 5 November, 14:30 & 19:30
Bananaman the Musical is the second of three semi-staged, rehearsed reading in the From Page to Stage 2016 season. It is a book in hand presentation of the full show.
“This is 29 Acacia Road. And this is Eric Wimp. He’s a schoolboy who leads an amazing double life. For when Eric eats a banana an amazing transformation occurs. Eric is Bananaman. Ever alert for the call to action.”
Bananaman the Musical is the live action debut of the Man of Peel, a cult cartoon character from the Dandy and from the hugely popular cartoon series voiced by the Goodies. With a useless hero and some equally clueless villains, Bananaman’s winkingly clever, delightfully silly humour has been sealed into the memories of those who saw him first, and will now spark the imagination of a new bunch of Bananafans.
Produced by Sightline Entertainment in association with DC Thomson, it won’t be long before we all ‘Peel the Power’ of Bananaman.
