Bananaman the Musical has announced its world premiere at Southwark Playhouse.

Based on the comic book character of the same name, the musical is written by Leon Parris, choreographed by Grant Murphy, and directed by Mark Perry.

The show received a rehearsed reading at last year’s From Page to Stage festival, but will have a full run at the London theatre from December 15 to January 20. Press night is on January 4.

The Bananaman character first appeared in the Nutty comic in 1980, and later transferred to The Dandy and The Beano. He also starred in a cartoon series between 1983 and 1986 on the BBC.

Casting is to be announced.

Sightline Entertainment is producing the show in partnership with Beano Studios.
