Live on Stage!


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

The tea-guzzling Tiger roars into Cadogan Hall this summer of 2016 in this truly magical Olivier Award nominated production of THE TIGER WHO CAME TO TEA, straight from a smash-hit international tour and West End Christmas run at the Lyric Theatre.

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 The Gingerbread Man, eight Roald Dahl adaptations, including West End hits The BFG, The Witches and George's Marvellous Medicine; and the Olivier Award winning Goodnight Mister Tom. 


For children aged 3 and above. Running time: approx 55 minutes (no interval).
