CDP presents Tall Stories’ production of
THE GRUFFALO
Based on the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

“Monstrous fun…sparks the young imagination..hugely popular…enthralling entertainment.” – London Sunday Herald

A mouse took a stroll through the deep, dark wood …

After sell-out seasons across the world, including London’s West End and Broadway, The Gruffalo returns to Australia.

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in this 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 party mad 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 scary fun!

Suitable for: Ages 3+ and their families
