Popular children’s play The Tiger Who Came To Tea is back in the West End for its 8th successful season.
The Olivier Award nominated show is returning to the Theatre Royal Haymarket for a Summer 2022 season, running from 11 July to 4 September 2022.
This delightful musical play is based on Judith Kerr’s award-winning books, and adapted and directed by David Wood OBE.
Judith Kerr’s timeless classic illustrated book The Tiger Who Came to Tea was first published in 1968 and is in its 54th year, having sold over 5 million copies. The stage show first premiered in 2008, and has never stopped touring around the UK and internationally.
In 2012 the show was nominated for the Olivier Award for ‘Best Family Entertainment’.
Bringing the nation’s favourite tea-guzzling tiger to life on stage, this musical slice of teatime mayhem entertains with sing-a-long songs, oodles of magic and interactive fun. It’s the ideal introduction to live theatre for children aged three and above and the perfect summer treat for the whole family.
The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her Mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripy tiger!
Directed by David Wood OBE, with designs by Susie Caulcutt, assistant director/choreographer Emma Clayton, music arranger & supervisor Peter Pontzen, magical illusions designed by former President of the Magic Circle Scott Penrose, lighting design by Tony Simpson and sound design by Shock Productions.
