About the show
Sophie and her mummy are getting the plates and cups out for tea, when there’s a knock at the door. Who could it be? They’re definitely not expecting a large, orange, stripy tiger waiting in the porch! As the trio sit down for food and fun, expect plenty of mayhem, sing-a-longs and engaging fun for children in this high-spirited adventure.
Based on Judith Kerr’s beloved picture book, The Tiger Who Came to Tea was previously nominated for an Olivier Award. The team bringing it to life on stage is full of children’s theatre stars, including director and adaptor David Wood (The Witches; Babe the Sheep Pig), assistant director and choreographer Emma Clayton (Aliens Love Underpants) and designer Susie Calcutt.
Snuggle down into your seats and get ready to welcome a very peculiar visitor: The Tiger Who Came to Tea at the Theatre Royal Haymarket is a perfect slice of escapism, beginning on 9 December 2019.
