Tiger’s tale is a roar­ing suc­cess

Watch this mu­si­cal ver­sion of a clas­sic chil­dren’s book and tea time will never be the same again

Coventry Telegraph - - FAMILY TIME -

THE door­bell rings just as So­phie and her mummy are sit­ting down to tea.

Who could it pos­si­bly be? What they cer­tainly don’t ex­pect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger…!

Not only did the tiger go to the door of So­phie’s house, one of the most fa­mous lit­er­ary char­ac­ters has prowled his way from Ju­dith Kerr’s book to the stage in a mu­si­cal play adapted from the chil­dren’s clas­sic pic­ture book – and he will be ar­riv­ing at a num­ber of theatres be­tween now and De­cem­ber 31.

Fol­low­ing a smash-hit West End sea­son, The Tiger Who Came to Tea is back on the road across the UK in a de­light­ful fam­ily show, packed with oo­dles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy of the clas­sic tale A stun­ning stage adap­ta­tion of teatime may­hem... its pro­duc­ers say you can ex­pect to be sur­prised.

It has been adapted and di­rected by Olivier Award win­ner David Wood whose other suc­cesses in­clude The Ginger­bread Man, The Witches and Babe the Sheep Pig.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea is aimed at chil­dren aged three and above. And with run­ning time around 55 min­utes with no in­ter­val it’s the per­fect treat for ev­ery­one to en­joy.
