Olivier Award-nominated musical play The Tiger Who Came To Tea is at The Lyceum Theatre on 24th and 25th March.

Adapted and directed by David Wood from Judith Kerr’s popular story, this is the perfect way to show the whole family how to behave next time a tiger rings your 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 of three years and upwards and their families.

David Wood is the country’s leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children.

His 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 which was the Olivier Award-winner 2013 for Best Entertainment and Family.

Performances of The Tiger Who Came To Tea are at 1.30pm and 4.30pm on 24th March and 10.30am and 1.30pm on 25th March.
