Why See The Tiger Who Came To Tea?
Based on the award-winning picture book by Judith Kerr, this delightful family show is packed with fun for cubs everywhere and their respective grown-ups. The Tiger Who Came to Tea is one of the best-selling picture books of all time; since its publication way back in 1968, it has sold over four million copies worldwide and has been translated in over 20 different languages.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
This magical adaptation penned by the leading children's theatre David Wood OBE sees a normal family tea-time interrupted by a very large and stripey guest. As the Tiger ingratiates himself into the household, chaos and clumsy shenanigans ensue, as the family race to keep their peculiar guest occupied and fed. Expect magic, sing-along songs for your cubs to join in with, and of course, plenty of slapstick comedy to keep them (and you) rrrrroaring with delight!
Wood's previous stage successes span an entire canon of favourite children's stories that include Goodnight Mr Tom; Shaun The Sheep; George's Marvellous Medicine; Fantastic Mr Fox; The Gingerbread Man; The BFG; The Witches; Meg and Mog; Spot The Dog and Babe the Sheep Pig.
Opening night: 25 November 2015
