Judith Kerr's Classic Children's Book Brought To Live Stage
Children's favourite The Tiger Who Came to Tea is set to delight a new generation of children as it takes to the road on a major UK tour. The magical Olivier Award nominated West End production will be roaring onto stages across Britain, including several performances at the Lichfield Garrick theatre over the course of May 10 and 11.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea
The Tiger Who Came To Tea is coming to the stage

Adapted and directed by David Wood OBE, Judith Kerr's ever popular tale, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, is the ideal introduction to theatre for children from the age of three upwards. The story opens with Sophie and her Mummy about to sit down to tea when suddenly the doorbell rings. Who could it possibly be? Well, they certainly don't expect to see a big furry, stripy tiger at the door, that's for sure! And when Sophie and her Mummy welcome the hungry Tiger to tea, he proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more. He even manages to drink all the water in the tap! What will Sophie's Daddy say when he gets home? Join the Tiger, Sophie, her Mummy and Daddy in this musical slice of teatime fun with sing-a-long songs, lots of magic and interactive fun.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea
