Tom Fletcher – aka leader of all things cutesy and quaint – is doing another cute, quaint thing with his children’s book-turned-film The Christmasaurus.
The Christmasaurus is now being adapted for the stage in 2017, with Tom announcing the news on Instagram this morning (December 6).
“The Christmasaurus LIVE! Is coming to the Eventim Apollo London on Friday December 22nd 2017, featuring music, magic, me and some very special guests (to be announced),” Tom wrote. “Tickets on sale this Friday 9am!!!!!!”
Promising snow, magic, Christmas lights, a very Christmassy dinosaur, music, singing elves and “the big man himself”, Tom can be seen being adorable in his Instagram video.
Holding his ‘script’, he makes his way through festive rooms backstage before ending up on stage to find nobody in the audience because the show is actually next year.
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Tom is working on brand new music for the film adaptation of his children’s book.
It follows the festive tale of a boy named William Trundle who meets a dinosaur called The Christmasaurus on Christmas Eve and together they embark on a magical adventure.
The animated film adaptation will be helmed by Hollywood director Michael Gracey, who is currently working with the likes of Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron on The Greatest Showman On Earth.
Tom has written a number of new songs to be included in the film, which he will also perform at this year’s Royal Variety Performance.
