    The Gruffalo Tickets

    Tall Stories bring their exhilarating adaptation of Julia Donaldson’s beloved book The Gruffalo to the stage again. When Mouse takes a hazardous journey into the forest, she cleverly distracts her predators with the story of the mythical Gruffalo. This delightful show is perfect for introducing little ones to the theatre.

    The perfect first theatre experience

    Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s famous picture book comes to life on stage in a captivating adaptation. Having played to sell-out audiences across the world, The Gruffalo returns to London's Lyric Theatre for another summer season.

    Come along as Mouse sets off on a daring journey into the woods in search of food. Along the way, she meets some slippery predators with rumbling tummies and must devise a cunning plan to avoid becoming dinner. She distracts them with the terrifying story of the Gruffalo, a creature who is half grizzly bear and half buffalo. But is this mythical beast really just a product of Mouse's imagination?

    The Gruffalo is one of a handful of the former children's Laureate’s books that have been adapted for the stage, with 'The Gruffalo's Child', ‘Room on a Broom’, and ‘The Snail and the Whale’ delighting West End audiences.

    With a smooth 55 minute running time, and packed with comedy, interactions, music and physical theatre, The Gruffalo tickets are the perfect way to introduce your little ones to the magic of theatre.

    A perfect example of storytelling for youngsters with just the right level of scariness, The Gruffalo shouldn't be missed.
