Live on Stage!


A musical play adapted and directed by DAVID WOOD, based on the book by JUDITH KERR. 

The tea-guzzling Tiger pounces back into the West End in this truly magical Olivier Award nominated production of THE TIGER WHO CAME TO TEA, opening at the Lyric Theatre Shaftesbury Avenue on WEDNESDAY 25 NOVEMBER 2015 and running throughout Christmas to SUNDAY 10 JANUARY 2016 before heading off to Australia for a 2016 winter run.
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! 
Packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos, this is a stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem...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).
