The Tiger Who Came to Tea

The doorbell rings. Sophie and her mother are mystified. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripey tiger!

The story, based on the classic bestselling book of all time by Judith Kerr; was first published in 1968, and since then has been so popular it has never been out of print. Join the Tiger, Sophie and her Mummy and Daddy, in this happy slice of teatime mayhem. The musical is packed with magic, sing-a-long songs and great audience participation.

It’s a stunning stage adaptation by David Wood of the classic tale of chaos at the tea table. Expect to be surprised! The Tiger Who Came to Tea tells the story of a tiger who unexpectedly knocks on the door of Sophie’s house, just as Sophie and her Mummy are sitting down to tea. Of course, things get a little crazy when the tiger tells them he is hungry and thirsty. He proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, all the buns, all the biscuits, and then he drinks all the milk and even drains all the water from the tap. Sophie is worried. What will Daddy say when he comes home and there is no food for supper?

After every performance the audience will have an opportunity to meet the Tiger and maybe even get a tiger-hug! Or at least a tiger photo!
