Football Freddie

Fidget Theatre Presents
Football Freddie

The story of a little girl,
With a big love of the beautiful game
And her Great-Great-Great Uncle,
Who shares the same name.

A new show for children and their grown-ups about football, team-work and the joy of joining in. Freddie Farren is a little girl who loves football but is too nervous to join in a game in her local park. Out of a magical photograph steps Freddie’s Great-Great-Great Uncle Fred; a real footballer from the olden days. Uncle Fred takes Freddie back in time where they re-live footballing glories of old. Freddie renews her confidence and enthusiasm and everyone joins in a good old-fashioned kick around.
