The Gruffalo stage production returns to Melbourne for the spring school holidays
The adaptation of Julia Donaldson’s award-winning children's book The Gruffalo returns to the Melbourne stage this October.
The Athenaeum Theatre's stage will be transformed into the "Deep Dark Wood" for a short time to entertain your little mice in the spring school holidays c/o UK theatre production company Tall Stories & Australia’s own CDP.
The Gruffalo follows the journey of the hungry Mouse who heads into the wood to find hazelnuts, only to run into a forest full of predators! There's the smirking, wheeler-dealer Fox; an eccentric, retired Woodland Air Force General Owl and the maraca-shaking, party animal Snake.
Rather than becoming the main course of their next meal, Mouse kills their appetites with stories of an imaginary monster friend. But what happens when Mouse comes face to face with the very creature she imagined?
The Gruffalo returns to the Anthenaeum Theatre
The Australian tour of The Gruffalo reaches the Athenaeum Theatre on 2 October, this time featuring brand new sets and costumes.
A trio of bright new performers will fill the stage-forest with colourful characters, catchy songs and dance.
The heart-warming sequel, The Gruffalo’s Child will take Melbourne audiences on another monster adventure at the Athenaeum Theatre from 1-22 December 2018.
