The Gruffalo: Tall Stories Theatre CompanyThe Gruffalo is a classic that kiddies just love and a popular Christmas outing, returning to the London stage for the sixth year running. The loveable little mouse will once again be taking a 'stroll through the deep, dark wood'. Threatened by various predators, a snake, an owl and a gruffalo with ''terrible tusks and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws'', the mouse outwits them all. The plot is enchanting and is told by Tall Stories with a winning simplicity. The cast of three manage to transform the Lyric Theatre stage with remarkably few props and a host of infectiously catchy songs, not to mention some superb dance routines and non-stop drama. Many of the memorable lines become catchphrases and are repeated throughout the show in a bid to appeal to the innate 'again, again' approach favoured by children. By the end of the show they can raucously join in with their favourite bits. "A fine piece of children's theatre," says The Sunday Times; "Monstrous fun," says The Daily Mail. Recommended for children aged 3+. Book tickets to The Gruffalo today.

 

About Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue

The Lyric, Shaftesbury Avenue's oldest theatre was opened in 1888, just two years after the street itself was completed. An indistinct red brick building, it lacks the grandeur of the neighbouring Gielgud and Apollo, but has a charm and unassuming beauty that are all its own. More about Lyric Shaftesbury Avenue
