Are you sitting comfortably?

Cats sit on mats, hares sit on chairs, mules sit on stools, gophers sit on sofas and frogs sit on logs

Join FROG, DOG and CAT live on stage in Oi Frog & Friends! at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre from Thu 13 – Sat 15 Feb, as the show tours the UK direct from a smash‐hit West End season.

It’s a new day at Sittingbottom School and FROG is looking for a place to sit, but CAT has other ideas and DOG is doing as he’s told. Little do any of them know that chaos is coming… who knew there were so many rhyming rules and what will happen when FROG is in charge? Oi Frog & Friends!, the critically acclaimed 55‐minute action‐packed play with songs, puppets, laughs and, of course, rhymes comes to town this spring!

Oi Frog & Friends! is created for the stage by Emma Earle, Zoe Squire, Luke Bateman and Richy Hughes, bringing together Kes Gray and Jim Field’s bestselling and award‐winning series of picture books Oi Frog!, Oi Dog!, Oi Cat! and Oi Duck‐Billed Platypus!, published by Hachette Children’s Group, into one fun‐filled musical production.

The cast line‐up for the 2020 UK tour is Darren Seed as DOG, Lucy Tuck as CAT, Robin Hemmings as FROG and Simon Yadoo as CHEETAH, with Rebecca Ayres as Understudy/ASM.

Hailed as one of the most successful picture books of the decade with more than one million copies sold to date, Author Kes Gray says of the show, “The stage show has taken the Oi characters to places I could never have imagined. The fun, the artistry and the sheer theatrical genius of this production really is something to behold!

Illustrator Jim Field says, “Seeing the characters brought to life from our series of Oi books was both surreal and incredible. Oi Frog & Friends! bounces along with non‐stop energy, amazing puppets, funny songs, shouty rhymes, and a squirty elephant trunk. It’s brilliantly bonkers!
