A mouse can scare hungry animals away with tall stories of the terrifying Gruffalo, but what happens when he comes face to face with the very creature he imagined? Join Mouse on an adventurous journey through the deep, dark wood in this magical musical adaptation of the multi-award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
“Tall Stories have transformed a well-loved story into an exuberant, funny show.”Time Out (UK)
Following the international success of Room on the Broom and Twinkle Twonkle, Tall Stories Theatre Company returns to New York with a celebrated production of this beloved story. Showcasing Tall Stories' distinctive physical, visual performance style, The Gruffalo is full of songs, laughs, and thrilling fun.
Reviewing the sold-out run in London, Time Out Hong Kong wrote, “Tall Stories Theatre Company’s production of Julia Donaldson’s best-selling children’s book offers…gripping, hilarious entertainment that will see your kids miraculously glued to their seats (and making roaring sounds during the interactive parts), while the adults roll about in their chairs at the Monty Python-esque humour of it all.”
Produced by Tall Stories Theatre Company of London, England
