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, and 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.

When Sophie and her mummy welcome the hungry Tiger to tea, he proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more. He 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 aged three plus.
