CDP presents Tall Stories’ magical musical adaptation of The Gruffalo’s Child

The Gruffalo said that no Gruffalo should
Ever set foot in the deep dark wood...

If you loved The Gruffalo, don't miss the sequel, which returns to the Joan Sutherland Performing Arts Centre on Saturday 3 November following previous sellout Australian tours! Join the Gruffalo’s Child on her adventurous mission in this magical musical adaptation of the much-loved picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, published by Macmillan Children’s Books.

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the deep dark wood. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist... does he?

Exploring the "brains over brawn" theme, the creatures, the rhythms and rhymes are fun and infectious, bringing together physical theatre, music and puppetry to deliver songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up, and their adults.

Conceived in 1999 and premiering in 2001, Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of The Gruffalo’s Child has toured the UK, Europe, North America, Asia and Australia – including runs in London’s West End, on Broadway and at Sydney Opera House.  Get in quick – tickets are selling fast!

“...this brave little offspring of the Gruffalo captures the young audience and keeps it entranced....the production does true justice to the much loved characters...”  (Stage Whispers, Sydney)
