MusicalsFamily ShowsTheatre for Kids and Families

Celebrating 50 years of tea-time!

Judith Kerr's best-selling children's book The Tiger Who Came to Tea celebrates over 50 years of the beloved children's book! Perfect for youngsters and their families, David Wood OBE's family production will delight and entertain. There'll be plenty of chaos, magic and sing-along songs to keep the cubs entertained as the Tiger travels around the UK! 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.
