This big scary monster is back!
The Gruffalo is a musical adaptation of the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.
Follow Mouse as he goes looking for hazelnuts in a deep dark wood, scaring away the hungry animals with his made-up tales about a terrifying Gruffalo. But then he comes face-to-face with a big toothed hairy monster in the forest -- a real Gruffalo -- the same creature that he's been imagining!
The show has lots of songs and laughs for children aged three and up (and their parents too!).
