The Gruffalo's ChildDuration 55mins

Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, London, United Kingdom, W1D 7ES

Join The Gruffalo’s Child on her adventurous mission in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the deep dark wood. She follows snowy tracks and encounters mysterious creatures – but the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist... does he?

Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups, in the hugely popular show that’s toured Britain and the world!

Following hot on the heels of The Gruffalo's monstrous West End success comes The Gruffalo's Child - with attitude! Just how brave is she? Find out for yourselves by joining her in the West End Christmas 2017.
