THE TIGER WHO CAME TO TEA to Roar Into the West End, Summer 2014
The tea-guzzling Tiger pounces back into the West End in this truly magical Olivier Award nominated production of THE TIGER WHO CAME TO TEA, opening at the Lyric Theatre Shaftesbury Avenue on WEDNESDAY 2 JULY and running throughout the summer to SUNDAY 7 SEPTEMBER 2014.
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. And 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 ages 3 plus and their families.
David Wood is undisputedly the country's leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children, whose many successes include: Spot's Birthday Party, eight Roald Dahl adaptations, including West End hits The BFG, The Witches and George's Marvellous Medicine; and Goodnight Mister Tom the Olivier Award-winner 2013 for Best Entertainment and Family. The cast are to be confirmed.
The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripy tiger!
