A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood…

Join Mouse on an adventurous journey through the deep, dark wood in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of The Gruffalo, based on the award-winning picture book by Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson MBE and Axel Scheffler.

Meet a wheeler-dealer Fox, an eccentric old Owl and a maraca-shaking, party-mad Snake! Mouse can scare these hungry animals away with tall stories of the terrifying Gruffalo, but what happens when he comes face to face with the very creature he imagined…?

Expect songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3+ and their grown-ups, in a show that’s toured around Britain and the world. Let your imagination run wild!

Since its 2001 premiere, The Gruffalo has been performed everywhere from Poland to Germany, from Australia to Hong Kong and Singapore, from Dubai to Chile and from Broadway to Alaska. This smash hit production has even been seen on the festival circuit playing to over 15,000 people at Camp Bestival and performing at Sydney Opera House!

Tall Stories is a theatre company that presents old, new and timeless stories in a physical, visual style, always acknowledging the presence of the audience.
