Founded in 2017, Freckle Productions is an independent commercial company that looks to create a wide variety of high quality theatre – for audiences of all ages – as well as working with a wide range of collaborative artists.

Freckle Productions concentrates on producing work for children and families, as well as a wide variety of commercial performance.


2017 for Freckle saw a return to the West End for Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales as well a large scale national tour for the ever-loved Stick Man. 2018 so far has featured Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales hitting the road for seven months and Stick Man returning to the West End. Excitingly we are now working on two new Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler adaptations – Tabby McTat  directed by Alan Lane (Slunglow), and with original songs by Bobby Delaney, debuts in October 2018 and has a full UK tour. Our other Donaldson/Scheffler debut, Zog, directed by Mike Shepherd and with original songs by Johnny Flynn, opens in early 2019 in London and then tours nationally.  Freckle's brand new show The 7 Percent Solution by David Jackson, about the human cost of the education crisis previewed at The Old Market in Brighton in August and is looking at a full debut in late 2019. We are also co-producing The Official Fawlty Towers Dining Experience with Phil McIntyre Entertainments, as well as several other projects. Please do check back soon for updates.

Caroline

Caroline Brooks

Production Assistant

Caroline trained at Bird College of Performing Arts and graduated with a Degree in Dance and Theatre Performance. Her professional career began as a performer, and she enjoyed a number of happy years kicking her legs and treading the boards, working both abroad and in the UK for such companies as Qdos, Paul Elliott Ltd and CMC. The role of Lily St. Regis in the touring UK Production of “Annie” was to be her last performance role, and as Resident Director and Dance Captain, she certainly learnt about working with both children and animals!!!

Caroline “retired” backstage and has been working in the wonderful world of Wardrobe for the last decade. Credits include: Hairspray (Shaftesbury Theatre, 2008), Footloose (UK Tour, 2011), Midnight Tango (UK Tour, 2012), West Side Story (UK Tour, 2013/14) Urinetown, (Apollo Theatre, 2015), Wicked (Apollo Victoria, 2016) and most recently the current UK Tour of Miss Saigon.

Joining the incredible team at Freckle poses a fantastic new opportunity for Caroline and she is absolutely thrilled to continue her theatre career on such an exciting new pathway.
