About The Tiger Who Came To Tea Theatre Show

Sophie and her mummy are about to sit down for their tea when they suddenly hear a loud knock at the door. Who could it be? Surely not a large… stripy… hungry tiger?! They invite him in, but is there enough food for such an unexpected guest?

Packed with colourful characters and costumes, fun sing-a-longs, lots of surprises, and an engaging story that we all know and love, this stage adaptation is magical, roar-some fun for the whole family.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea on stage is a popular show in the West End every summer and brings the picture book to life with incredible skill. It is adapted by a team of fantastic children’s theatre creatives including director David Wood, whose other credits include The Witches and Meg and Mog.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea Theatre Reviews

This bright, bold, funny show is a real favourite for children, and parents love it too! It has been a top choice for families wanting to take pre-schoolers to see live theatre for over a decade, and year after year it is praised as one of the best London shows for kids.

Time Out calls it “a delight from start to finish”, while The Guardian praised it for being “beautifully re-created on the stage”. If you want real parents’ opinions, the biggest mummy bloggers rave about this show too.

Blogger Mum What Else called it, “a lovely play with catchy songs and audience participation,” while Honest Mum proclaimed that she was “unleashing my inner 5 year old with abandon (giving my ACTUAL 5 year old son a run for his money in the booty-shaking stakes) for this feel-good show the whole family lapped up and adored”!

If you are looking for a show that is short enough for your child to sit through without fidgeting too much, with lots of laughs, interactive moments and a story they already know, this is the perfect choice.

Performance date: 09 July 2024

Really fun adaptation of the well-loved classic. The actors really put in their all and the set was well designed and close to the well known drawings in the book, as were the costumes (very important for children) so as to be recognisable. The tiger Read more

Always amazed how well put together a show can be with so few characters and props. The tiger won over the audience and was a great show for any fan of the story and loved the interactive singing and dancing bits.
