The Tiger Who Came To Tea, is a much love children's picture-book. First published in 1968 it has been passed down through generations, I certainly loved it when I was a child and I still see it in bookshops today. The book, written by Judith Kerr, has sold millions of copies worldwide and has been translated into several different languages.

The story follows Sophie and her Mummy who sit down to tea only to be interrupted by a tiger. The tiger eats all their food and drinks all their tea, and even manages to drain the taps dry so that Sophie can't take her bath!

This classic children's story has now been turned into a children's musical and it is coming to the West End in July. Taking residence at the Vaudeville theatre it is the perfect treat for the summer holidays.

The story is brought to life on stage with a mixture of music, magic and plenty of opportunities for audience participation. The stage adaptation along with all the music and lyrics was written by David Wood OBE, one of the country's leading writers in children's musical theatre. It is designed for children aged 3 and above, and the sing-a-long aspect of the show is designed to encourage youngsters in both numeracy and listening skills. It runs for just under an hour, and there is plenty going on, on stage to keep even the youngest audience members enthralled.

It stars Jenanne Redman as Mummy, and Alan Atkins as Daddy/Tiger.

Tickets are already on sale and can be purchased online or from the theatre itself. If you cannot make it in London, the show is currently touring the UK check out the show's website for full details.
