The Gruffalo's Child

CDP presents Tall Stories’ magical musical adaptation of The Gruffalo’s Child, based on the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, published by Macmillan Children’s Books

After sell-out seasons of its predecessor nation-wide, the team behind The Gruffalo return with the charming sequel based on Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s world wide best seller, playing at the National Theatre, St Kilda from 14-19 July 2015.


The Gruffalo said that no gruffalo should

Ever set foot in the deep dark wood…


But one wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s child ignores her father’s warning and tiptoes out into the snow. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist… does he?

The Gruffalo’s Child brings this much loved book to life on stage, using physical theatre, music and puppetry to deliver songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 4 and up and their adults. This best selling production, which has wowed audiences around the world, returns to Melbourne for one week only after a sold out premiere season in 2012.


Critics have raved about The Gruffalo’s Child:

“winningly played” (Sydney Morning Herald)

“can’t fail to please” (Brisbane Courier Mail)


Most importantly, The Gruffalo’s Child has surprised and delighted young audiences around the country. Don’t miss it!
