Internationally acclaimed theatre company Tall Stories today announces that The Gruffalo’s Child is to follow in her father’s giant footsteps with a Christmas season in the West End! It’s a big step - just how brave is she? Find out for yourselves by joining her at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue from Wednesday 22 November 2017 to Sunday 7 January 2018. This festive season will showcase the production’s new set and costumes, and is the first time The Gruffalo’s Child will play at the Lyric.

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?

Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s award-winning sequel to The Gruffalo (published by Macmillan Children’s Books) is ‘everything good children’s theatre should be’ (The list). Songs, laughs and lots of fun for children aged 3 and up and their families.

The Gruffalo’s Child is produced by award-winning theatre company Tall Stories - a creative force whose productions include The Gruffalo, the Olivier Award Nominated Room on the Broom, The Snail and the Whale and The Snow Dragon. The creative team includes Director Olivia Jacobs, Creative Producer Toby Mitchell, Designer Isla Shaw, Composers Jon Fiber & Andy Shaw of JollyGoodTunes and Lighting Designer James Whiteside.
