Tall Stories Presents

The Gruffalo

Based on the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler


A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood...

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 - celebrating 25 years in 2024!

A fine piece of children’s theatre

The Sunday Times

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!

An entertaining musical version of the popular picture book [with] tuneful songs… and engaging, gently pantomimic interaction
