The Gruffalo’s Child

Based on the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, published by Macmillan Children’s Books.

The Joan presents CDP with Tall Stories’ magical musical adaptation of  The Gruffalo’s Child, based on the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, published by Macmillan Children’s Books.

The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should

Ever set foot in the deep dark wood…

If you loved The Gruffalo, don’t miss this sequel.

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s child ignores her father’s warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist. Does he?

The team behind The Gruffalo and Room On The Broom return with The Gruffalo’s Child, bringing together physical theatre, music and puppetry to deliver songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 4 and up, and their adults…

“winningly played” (Sydney Morning Herald)

“…this brave little offspring of the Gruffalo captures the young audience and keeps it entranced…..plenty of audience involvement to keep the kids active and engaged….” (Stage Whispers)

Duration: 55mins, no interval
