bananaman the musical



Sightline Entertainment in association with Cahoots Theatre Company Presents



Book, Music & Lyrics by Leon Parris

The most fruity superhero ever to grace the skies is going to make his live action debut in an all-singing, all-flying must-see new musical. Bananaman, the Man-of-Peel, may have a jaw line you can see from space but this superhero has the muscles of 20 men and the brain of 20 mussels. Which isn’t much. With supervillains Doctor Gloom and General Blight attempting world domination, who can we call? Superman’s on holiday, Spiderman’s not picking up – our only option, our very, very last option is… Bananaman.

Bananaman is one of the flagship characters in the world’s longest running comic, The Beano. He was also the subject of the hugely popular TV cartoon that ran on the BBC during the 1980s.

With a useless hero and some equally clueless villains, Bananaman’s riotously funny, slapstick humour has been sealed into the memories of those who first saw him, and will now spark the imagination of a new bunch of Bananafans. It won’t be long before we all peel the power of Bananaman.

This is the potassium powered musical that EVERYONE will love!
