Gruffalo Live – preview

If, like my little one, yours knows The Gruffalo practically off by heart, you will be looking forward to taking them to see this musical adaptation of the best-selling picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, which has been touring nationally and internationally since 2001.

Join Mouse on an adventurous journey through the deep dark wood, meet a wheeler-dealer Fox, an eccentric old Owl and a maraca-shaking, party-mad Snake.

Mouse can scare these hungry animals away with tall stories of the terrifying Gruffalo, but what happens when he comes face to face with the very creature he imagined?

Described as being for children aged 3 to 300!

The award-winning book was voted the nation’s number one bedtime story by BBC Radio 2 listeners and has even hit the small screens in a star-studded TV adaptation on BBC1.

A review will be on this site at the end of April.

“This is an irresistibly charming tale told with refreshing simplicity.” The Times

“A rare treat to find a show that really is for all the family, but this is one which cannot be commended enough for its spot-on achievements.” ***** The List

“an exuberant, funny show” Time Out
