Best Bits

Superman’s on holiday. Spiderman’s not picking up. Our only option – our very, very last option – is Bananaman. 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. 

"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 Man-of-Peel may have a jaw line you can see from space and sport an exciting tight lycra outfit, but this superhero has the muscles of 20 men and the brain of 20 mussels. Which isn’t much.

  • For the first time ever, Bananaman will be live on stage
  • Everyone's favourite fruit-based superhero
  • A unique member of the superhero ranks in an all-singing, all-dancing musical to remember
  • Based on the hilarious character from the Beano and the Bananaman cartoon
  • See the hero attempt to halt the evil world domination plans of supervillains Doctor Gloom and General Blight.
  • Directed by Mark Perry (A Comedy of Arias, Little Shop of Horrors)
  • Fantastic family theatre this Christmas
