The Gruffalo's Child


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

If you loved The Gruffalo, don't miss the sequel - The Gruffalo's Child. Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling book has once again been adapted for the stage by London’s Award Winning Tall Stories Theatre Company (the team behind The Gruffalo), and produced in Australia and New Zealand by CDP.

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s child ignores her father’s warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn't really exist, does he?

Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 4 and up, and their adults…
