The Gruffalo Summary

Have you seen the Gruffalo? An enormous creature with terrible claws, orange eyes, and a poisonous wart on the end of its nose, the Gruffalo is the most terrifying monster in the whole forest. At least, that’s what quick-thinking Mouse says. The tales Mouse spins of an imaginary protector quickly scare off the likes of Fox, the wild, cockney taxi driver; Owl, the gung-ho military ace; and Snake, the maraca-shaking party animal. But just when Mouse thinks it’s safe to resume the hunt for hazelnuts, an unexpected visitor appears… Britain’s best-selling picture book of 2000-02 gets a musical makeover in this smart production by Tall Stories Theatre Company. “A must see for children and anyone with a sense of fun” (Three Weeks), this Gruffalo isn’t so scary, but it is monstrously entertaining!

Audience :

Appropriate for ages 4 and older.

We suggest children attending the show be at least 4 years old because the content of the show requires a certain amount of concentration and attention. This show is geared more toward our younger audiences. In other words, children over 8 years old might find the storyline too childish, although it is very sweet, funny and endearing.

NOTE: Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent. No one will be admitted without a ticket regardless of age!
