The Gruffalo has long been one of our favourite Julia Donaldson books, and what a treat to see Mouse, Fox, Snake, Owl and The Gruffalo himself live at the theatre! There are plenty of silly songs and audience participation, and Snake’s performance is hilarious. The younger ones in the audience will probably hide their eyes when the Gruffalo appears on stage, but otherwise we think you and your family will love it. Read on for more details, a little video preview, and a little about the creators of this fab production.
