The Gruffalo

Preschool Grade-3

March 15-24

A Tall Stories of London Production

Connections: Problem Solving, Storytelling, Imagination

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book.

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party mad Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?

“Monstrous Fun” ★★★★ The Daily Mail
“Irresistibly Charming.” ★★★★ The Times
