Treat the kids to an afternoon with this beloved, furry character with The Gruffalo tickets

Returning to the West End this summer is the charming tale of everyone’s favourite furry monster, The Gruffalo, which will play selected performances from July 1st at the Lyric 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 Vaudeville 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 brave Mouse who embarks on an adventure through the deep, dark forest, the audience encounter 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 Lyric Theatre from July 1st to September 6th 2016, The Gruffalo is a family-friendly treat that will delight and entertain audiences.

Child Friendly

A family-friendly show, The Gruffalo is suitable for children aged 3 and up. Babes in arms tickets for children up to 18 months are available from the box office on the day of each performance.
