Gruffalo’s Child heads to the West End

Theatre company Tall Stories will bring The Gruffalo’s Child to the Lyric Theatre in London’s West End this Christmas (November 22-January 7).

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.

Tall Stories’ musical adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s award-winning sequel to The Gruffalo is aimed at children aged three and older, along with their families.

Other productions by Tall Stories include The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom, The Snail and the Whale and The Snow Dragon.

Current projects include The Gruffalo’s Child Live at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August, and a UK tour of Room on the Broom Live.

The award-winning picture book, The Gruffalo’s Child, by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler was first published by Macmillan Children’s Books in 2004.

The Gruffalo’s Child Live stage show premiered at London’s Polka Theatre in October 2005, and has since toured the UK and the world including North America and Australia.
