The new-look Postman Pat is heading out on tour for a new live show in 2010, following an agreement between Entertainment Rights and Premier Stage Productions.
The show - based on Postman Pat Special Delivery Service - will feature characters from the TV series and is set to play at over 45 theatres throughout the UK from spring 2010.
"Children can expect to see some exciting new developments in the Postman Pat SDS live theatre show that deliver upon the brand new SDS series," said Mat Way, global head of live entertainment at ER.
"The show will continue to maintain a strong connection with the characters and settings that we all know and love, although the new production will also feature the new elements that now appear in the SDS TV series."
Jason Francis, director of Premier Productions, added: "We are delighted that Entertainment Rights has chosen Premier to exclusively develop Postman Pat SDS for the stage. The brand new series is pulling in big audiences and, with over 25 years of history behind him and a great history of live UK theatre, Postman Pat is a national institution who appeals to many generations.
"He is likely to be the hottest ticket in town."
