Had a wonderful time seeing his performance this morning. Took 5 children ranging from 4 years to 10 years, plus my sister, me and our mum! All thoroughly enjoyed it! Our mum read the story to us as children, and we in turn have read it to ours. There were extra bits added like songs, but they stuck to the story, some of it word for word. Even dressed the same! Would recommend!

4.5 star rating Mum from London, UK


We took a four- and six-year-old to this show first thing today and we all had a brilliant time. It is a simple piece of theatre and that's its charm. The three main actors were wonderful and this production perfectly introduced the youngsters to what the stage can offer.

Took a group of under 6s this afternoon, who all thoroughly enjoyed the performance. It’s designed and written for young children and they enjoy it. Take your children while they still enjoy life’s simple pleasures: it’s a short magical period.

My six your old granddaughter enjoyed it but wasn't thrilled by it. It was very thin - the tiger was great but once he went offstage the show should have been over - that last fifteen minutes were painful to sit through, Hideous acting from the woman who played the child - with some sort of weird speech thing going on that needs some serious attention. It was about the level of a decent am-dram village panto. NOT worth the ridiculous ticket prices.

Positives - memorable for my kids, who enjoyed the show. Appreciate the bit of interactively. Negatives - Sophie really should have been played by a child. The rag doll tick tock thing she did still gives me nightmares and I am a 40 year old man. I'm still surprised my kids have not pissed the bed.

Took my 2.5 year old who loves the book. She found it entertaining but I did not at all! Wanted to leave half way through. Overpriced for what it was, rubbish songs, weird for a grown woman to play Sophie, and a bit Am-Dram. Comparatively I saw Tiddler & Other tales last year and it was excellent!

1.0 star rating Victor from London


The popular children's story comes to the stage with an excellent set and true to the story tiger and characters. And that's where any enjoyment ends. This is a production suitable only for very small children (4 or under)ie those who can't spot this is rubbish. The TTWCTT is a not a substantial story in the first place and this production is padded like a cheap sofa particularly after the Tiger leaves - another 15 minutes of vacuous songs heroically performed. The cast work hard but cannot make a silk purse out a sow's ear of the writer's appallingscript/songs. That said my 9 year old and I laughed through the last 15 minutes and the Yummy Scrummy Sausages song and its 1,2,3,4 choruses. AVOID (LIKE THE BLACK DEATH)
