The Gruffalo’s Child

A musical adaptation of the book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler
Produced by Tall Stories
From London, England

The Gruffalo said that no Gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood…

Follow the Gruffalo’s Child on her adventurous mission in Tall Stories’ enchanting adaptation of the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.  One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the night.  She follows snowy tracks and encounters all sorts of woodland creatures, including a debonair snake, eccentric owl and a cunning fox.  But the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist, does he?  And what will the Gruffalo’s Child do when she finds him?

Three performers use Tall Stories’ distinctive style of physical storytelling combined with humor and catchy original music to create this lively performance. A wonderful follow-up to the original Gruffalo production but also perfect for anyone new to the deep dark wood…  Join the Gruffalo’s Child on her brave adventure and let your imagination run wild with songs, laughs and scary fun for everyone!
