For ages 3+

G Live, Guildford

Mon 30 March - Tue 31 March 2015

The Tiger Who Came to Tea


The tea-guzzling Tiger pounces onto G Live’s main stage with this truly magical Olivier Award nominated production of The Tiger Who Came to Tea.

Adapted and directed by David Wood OBE, Judith Kerr’s ferociously popular tale The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a Grrrreat musical play. If you’ve never had a Tiger arrive for tea, then this loveable production is the perfect way to show the whole family how to behave the next time one rings the doorbell.

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 furry, stripy tiger!

When Sophie and her mummy welcome the hungry Tiger to tea, he proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more. And even manages to the drink all the water in the tap! What will Sophie’s Daddy say when he gets home? The Tiger Who Came to Tea is the perfect slice of teatime mayhem with sing-a-long songs, oodles of magic and interactive fun for children ages 3 plus and their families.

David Wood is undisputedly the country’s leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children, whose many successes include: Spot’s Birthday Party, eight Roald Dahl adaptations, including West End hits The BFG, The Witches and George’s Marvellous Medicine; and Goodnight Mister Tom the Olivier Award-winner 2013 for Best Entertainment and Family.
