THE GRUFFALO- LIVE ON THEATRE!

My kids love watching TV especially cartoons. I know it's not ideal but my kids can watch cartoon shows all day everyday that even I get to enjoy it too, good thing all the shows are teaching them lessons in the end.

Last year for a change we introduced the kids to a classic form of presentation, the theater! Surprisingly, they enjoyed and we are looking into exposing them to more theater shows for them to appreciate the raw talents being showcased right before their eyes.

Is theater show something new to your kids? Now is the time to give your little ones the gift of magic and wonder of world class Live Theater with The Gruffalo! Showing at the RCBC Theatre from January 27 to 31, 2016, don’t miss out! 

Join Mouse on an adventurous journey in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation 
of the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

“Irresistibly charming!”  The Times, UK
“Monstrous fun!”  Daily Mail, UK


Mouse sets off on a daring adventure through the deep dark wood in search of hazelnuts, meeting the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party mad Snake on the way. Will the story of the fabled Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these wily woodland creatures? Armed with only a nut map and a little courage, Mouse must outwit them all, and after all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?


Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3 and up and their adults, in a show that’s toured around Britain and the world. Let your imagination run wild!
