The Gruffalo

Mouse is going hazelnut collecting. She's heading for the deep, dark wood, a place that is stuffed full of naughty animals who would quite like to eat her. Luckily Mouse has a secret weapon in the shape of an imaginary friend, the fierce Gruffalo, a monster that eats owls, foxes and snakes up for breakfast. She tells every predator she comes across about the Gruffalo, a creature that doesn't actually exist... or does he? Come to the Lyric theatre and enjoy a story that has thrilled generations of kiddies and delighted their families, too.

The original 1999 picture book has sold more than 13 million copies worldwide. It won numerous prizes for children's literature and the beautiful illustrations have found their way into the national consciousness. It has been a smash hit in the West End, on Broadway and at Sydney's famous Opera House, and it has become a Christmas favourite, a traditional festive theatrical experience loved by millions. The stage version is a madcap delight, a beautifully presented musical and a lovely treat for children of every age, from toddlers of two years old upwards. They will remember the experience forever, and you'll always remember their little faces as the story unfolds. Truly magical!
