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!

Arggh! My son loves the Gruffalo story, and he's been bugging me to make him a Gruffalo cake. He would love this, if only we're nearby...

the kids have read the story Gruffalo in school but haven't seen the play. I think it would be certainly an interesting experience.

It's been a long time since I have been to theater. Sayang I missed this one. Would have been fun to watch especially with my little one.

Too bad we missed this one. My kids are into theater pa naman. May I ask where you bought a copy of this book? I plan to read this to my boys too. :)
