Ten years after the release of the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson, The Gruffalo stomps back onto the West End stage this Christmas after last year's sell-out success.

The Apollo Theatre hosts the return of this energetic 55-minute production from 25th November 2009 to 10th January 2010, adapted and directed by Tall Stories duo Olivia Jacobs and Toby Mitchell.

Since its 2006 premiere, this exuberant smash-hit production has been performed over 3000 times to the delight of 700,000 children aged 3 and above, across the UK, Eastern Europe, the Americas and the Far East.

Ilustrated by Axel Scheffler, Donaldson's original book sold over 4 million copies in 38 languages, and is the subject of a star-studded BBC animation that will enjoy prime-time Christmas scheduling.

Follow the quick-thinking mouse into the deep, dark wood in this magical and musical modern classic. Discover what happens when he comes face to face with wheeler-dealer Fox, an eccentric old Owl, a maraca-shaking Snake, and, of course, the Gruffalo!

With uniquely physical and visually striking family shows, Tall Stories have made their mark in the West End, on Broadway and beyond. Previous successes include The Owl and The Pussycat and How the Giraffe got its Neck. They have recently staged Donaldson and Scheffler's Room on the Broom.
