Internationally acclaimed theatre company Tall Stories today announces that The Gruffalo’s Child is to follow in her father’s giant footsteps with a Christmas season in the West End! It’s a big step – just how brave is she? Find out for yourselves by joining her at the Lyric Theatre.
Stage Hero of the week is Owen Guerin, aka The Gruffalo in the larky children’s play based on Julia Donaldson’s immortal book. On the hottest West End day for decades there he was, even more overdressed for the weather than David Suchet in his Lady Bracknell rig across town. In an immense tatter-tag suit and hood, he roared and chased and danced and, in the culminating moments when Mouse (Ellie Bell) has outwitted him, abandons the stage to dive through the shrieking audience and leap over seatbacks in manic panic. Respect!
Award-winning company Scamp Theatre will bring several of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s best-loved children’s books to the London stage in 2015, including the world stage premiere of their most recent book The Scarecrows’ Wedding. Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales will also play a Summer Season at Leicester Square Theatre.
