Returning to the West End this Christmas is the charming tale of everyone’s favourite furry monster, The Gruffalo, which will play from December 15th at the Vaudeville Theatre.


In a magical adaptation of the award-winning children’s book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, The Gruffalo is brought to the stage by Tall Stories, who have transformed the story into an exciting and exuberant hour-long show. Previously performed at the Lyric Theatre as well as to millions worldwide, The Gruffalo is also a hit television animation with voices from James Corden, Helena Bonham-Carter and Robbie Coltrane.


Following the story of the brave Mouse who embarks on an adventure through the deep, dark forest, the audience encounters a variety of different characters; from a sneaky fox to a strange owl and a slithering snake. When these hungry woodland creatures appear, Mouse courageously outwits them all with tales of the terrible Gruffalo. But Mouse never expected to come face to face with the Gruffalo himself!


With a multitude of songs, laughs, physical theatre and fun, The Gruffalo is a show perfect for introducing theatre to primary school children and their accompanying adults. There are many opportunities to join in and let imaginations run wild!


Playing at the Vaudeville Theatre from December 15th to January 3rd 2016, The Gruffalo is a family-friendly treat that will delight and entertain audiences.
