The Gruffalo said that no Gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood…


Internationally acclaimed theatre company Tall Stories comes to Cardiff’s New Theatre next week from 2 – 5 August with The Gruffalo’s Child Live on Stage as part of a major UK and international tour. This season forms part of Tall Stories’ 21st anniversary season and will showcase the production’s new set and costumes, direct from a smash-hit West End season.

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? Audiences young and old will discover for themselves in this charming new musical adventure adapted from the loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Tall Stories’ hit musical adaptation of the 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.

The Gruffalo’s Child runs at the delightfully air-cooled New Theatre from 2 – 5 August and tickets are available from the Box Office on (029) 2087 8889 and
