Author Judith Kerr’s magnificent tea-guzzling tiger will roar on to the Corn Exchange stage this month in a magical, Olivier Award-nominated production of The Tiger Who Came To Tea.
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, stripy tiger.
Packed with tonnes of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos, this is a stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem.
A musical play for little ones aged three and over and their families, The Tiger Who Came To Tea is based on Judith Kerr’s much loved, best-selling children’s book that was first published in 1968.
A talented, three-person cast lovingly bring Sophie, her mummy, daddy and various other visitors to life, wearing costumes and performing on a set that replicates the book’s original illustrations as closely as possible, offering a real ‘page to stage’ experience for children and parents alike.
The well-known story has been adapted and directed by David Wood OBE, one of the country’s leading writers and directors of plays and musicals for children.
His many other successes include The Gingerbread Man, The BFG, The Witches, and the Olivier Award-winning Goodnight Mister Tom.
Join Sophie and her mum, and their stripy, orange guest at The Tiger Who Came to Tea at the Corn Exchange, Newbury. The show will take place on July 24 at 1.30pm, July 25 and July 26, at 11am and 2pm.
Tickets cost £13.50 and there are group and family discounts available. To book your place, either visit the Corn Exchange website cornexchangenew.com, or call the box office on 0845 5218 218.
