An enchanting adaption of the beloved family tale The Gruffalo’s Child comes to The Lowry this week.

Delivered by acclaimed theatre company Tall Stories, audiences are invited on a magical adventure inspired by the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

One wild and windy night the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and sneaks out into the deep dark woods. She follows snowy tracks and encounters mysterious creatures…but does the Big Bad Mouse really exist?

After seeing her book brought to life on stage, Julia Donaldson said: “Tall Stories bring their own special magic to their stage productions based on my books. Children will love entering the atmosphere of the deep dark wood and enjoy the catchy songs. The Big Bad Mouse is worth waiting for.”

Axel Scheffler added: “The snowy deep dark wood based on my illustrations is brought to life by Tall Stories and it almost becomes a character in its own right in their production. A favourite moment for me is when the Gruffalo’s Child sits on the Gruffalo’s lap and the book cover image is created on the stage. I think the young audience will enjoy it very much.”

The Gruffalo’s Child is showing at The Lowry until Sun 7 Apr. Book your tickets using the button below.
