About this event:

You are invited to a special free preview performance of The Gruffalo at Tall Stories Studio before the UK tour and London’s West End run!

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the high-spirited Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?

Songs, laughs and monstrous fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups, in the much-loved show that’s toured Britain and the world!


What to expect on the day:

Please aim to arrive around 15 mins before the start time. When you arrive, you will be waiting in the large corridor just outside the entrance to our studio, until the performers  are ready. See if you can spot our wooden Gruffalo in the library corridor whilst you are waiting!

You will be able to enter just before the show is due to begin. Please let us know if this is an issue.

This show is a preview performance, and we are excited that we can share this special occasion with you. As this is a preview in our rehearsal space, please be patient with us if we have any technical difficulties, and please be aware the show won’t be running usual lighting and sound that you might see in a full-sized theatre.

We will be running a short 15 minute Q&A after the performance for you to ask questions to the company if you wish.

Contact: fiona@tallstories.org.uk for any more information or questions.
