Go on a fun adventure for children with The Gruffalo’s Child play tickets! 

Do you think the Big Bad Mouse is real? Join the Gruffalo’s daughter on an adventure into the deep, dark woods with The Gruffalo’s Child play at the Garrick Theatre. This Christmas show will enchant the youngest theatregoers and keep the adults entertained as well! Julia Donaldson’s sequel to the beloved Gruffalo picture book is a magical stage show from Tall Stories theatre company. 

The Gruffalo warned his daughter about the dastardly Big Bad Mouse, but she didn’t listen. One snowy night, she sneaks out and heads toward the woods to see for herself! On her journey, she weaves between the trees, sees strange tracks in the snow and meets some incredible creatures. But is the Big Bad Mouse really real? And is he as bad as her father said? 

The Gruffalo’s Child play is a fun show for pre-school-aged children, and has all the ingredients to keep them entertained: catchy music and songs, a scary (but not too scary!) villain, and lots of surprises! It is adapted from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s best-selling picture book, which is a sequel to the beloved The Gruffalo. The Gruffalo is one of the most popular children’s characters ever created, and since 1999 millions of children have grown up listening to and watching his – and his daughter’s – adventures. 

This brilliant show is created by leading children’s theatre company Tall Stories, who are experts at bringing picture books to life with bright and bold costumes and set design, engaging music and interaction… all while keeping the brilliant stories and characters just like they are in the book! Their other shows include The Smeds and the Smoos and Room on the Broom
