The Tiger Who Came To Tea... Live on Stage!

Based on the picture book written and illustrated by Judith Kerr
Adapted for the stage with songs and lyrics by David Wood
The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!
For the first time ever, this much loved tale of a tiger creating tea time mayhem is brought vividly to life on stage in a show packed with oodles of magic, sing a long songs and clumsy chaos. Expect to be surprised!
David Wood OBE is undisputedly the country's leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children. His many successes include Fantastic Mr Fox, The Gingerbread Man, BFG, The Witches, Meg and Mog, Spot and Babe the Sheep Pig.
For children aged 3 and above.
Running time: Approx. 55 minutes (No interval)
