why watch the gruffalo

Venturing into the dark woods to find hazelnuts, Mouse ends up meeting not-so-welcoming characters. A Fox, Owl, and a Snake are looking for their dinner, and Mouse could be it. But will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from these creatures and is the Gruffalo even real?

First premiering in 2001, Tall Stories’ adaptation of the children’s picture book has direction by Olivia Jacobs – one of the Co-Founders of the Tall Stories production company – and a talented cast and crew, this show is sure to engage and delight audiences of all ages – especially little ones, of course.
