Brave the woods with The Gruffalo’s Child

March 8, 2024

Children’s author, Julia Donaldson’s award-winning picture book, The Gruffalo’s Child, is brought to the stage at Theatre Royal Winchester from Saturday 23 March.

In the story, The Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse to tiptoe into the deep dark wood. She follows snowy tracks and encounters mysterious – but the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he?

This enchanting adaptation of Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler’s much-loved tale is by Tall Stories theatre company – internationally recognised for their storytelling theatre and catchy music and whose productions include adaptations of Donaldson’s The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and The Smeds and The Smoos, plus, The Elmer Adventure – a musical adaptation of the Elmer stories by children’s author, David Mckee.

Audiences aged 3 to 103 are now invited to join The Gruffalo’s Child on her adventurous mission in a show that features striking costumes, songs, laughter and scary fun.

The Gruffalo’s Child will be at Theatre Royal Winchester from Saturday 23 – Sunday 24 March at various times. Recommended age: 3+. For more information or to book tickets visit theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk or call 01962 840 440.
