A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood... 

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

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the high-spirited 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?

Songs, laughs and monstrous fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups, in the much-loved show that’s toured Britain and the world! Running time 55 minutes (no interval)

My daughter is 3 years old and she didn’t enjoy so much the show. I was disappointed with the actors clothing, because they run a show for kids they suppose to wear some colourful costumes. The performance was good, just luck of proper costumes didn’t capture kids attention :(

I took my 3.5 year old to see this and it was entertaining for us both... especially the snake! The actors have great energy and if it wasn't for the seats (front row of the dress circle) this would have been a 5* review. I'll definitely be looking out for the production company when they put on "The snail and the whale" and "Oi Frog" at the Apollo :-)

Lovely interactive show, it was my daughters first trip to the theatre and she loved it! Missed the facepainting which was a shame, maybe this could also be booked in advance?
