TALL STORIES’ hit musical adaptation of the much loved picture book by JULIA DONALDSON and AXEL SCHEFFLER visit the Clayton Center for the Arts on February 18 for 2 shows, 1pm and 4pm, as the most fearsome creature that never was – but is, takes to the stage in this enchanting production with the perfect combination of songs, laughter, physical theatre and just the right amount of scary fun!
Set to a wonderfully catchy score with original music and lyrics, THE GRUFFALO continues to entertain audiences the world over. Join Mouse 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?
