Judith Kerr’s much-loved tale of The Tiger Who Came to Tea returns to the West End for a summer season from 4th July by popular demand.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea is one of the best-selling picture books of all time. Since it was first published in 1968, it has sold over 4 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over 20 languages.
The Tiger made his West End debut in 2011 to sell-out performances seen by over 35,000 people. His return this summer marks the tenth West End family season, since 2005, from the Company behind the hugely successful productions of
The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
This production of The Tiger Who Came to Tea at The Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, completes a 20 date spring tour kicking off in Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai, with UK dates including Birmingham Town Hall and The Lowry in Salford.
The show is directed and adapted for the stage by David Wood OBE, the country’s leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children. David’s many other successes include Shaun The Sheep; George’s Marvellous Medicine; and Goodnight Mister Tom, which is tipped for a further UK tour and West End run over the coming year. In November this year, David’s adaptation of James and the Giant Peach will set off on a tour of the UK, beginning in Birmingham.
The Tiger Who Came to Tea is the ideal introduction to theatre for pre and primary school children and their families. Featuring magic and sing-along songs, the show is perfect for developing literacy and listening skills and audience participation is highly encouraged. All adults must be accompanied by a responsible child.
Press are welcome to performances from Friday 6 July onwards.
