Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s The Gruffalo will return to the West End again this summer when Tall Stories’ hit musical adaptation of the well-known picture book sets up shop at London’s Lyric Theatre.

The much-loved deep dark wood-dwelling creation, which recently delighted families at the Vaudeville Theatre, will be back at the Lyric Theatre from 6 July to 4 September.

Tall Stories’ now iconic take on the Donaldson and Scheffler classic combines music, laughter and physical theatre to tell the story of Mouse as she sets off on a daring adventure in search of hazelnuts.

Young theatregoers can follow Mouse as she meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party-mad Snake, outwitting them with her tale about a creature with turned-out toes and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose.

The family show, which is suitable for children aged three-years-old and older, will play daytime performances at the Lyric Theatre alongside long-running hit Thriller Live, which will continue to entertain audiences with Michael Jackson’s greatest hits as normal.
