Would you have tea with a Tiger?
Olivier Award-nominated children’s theatre favourite, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, is bringing mayhem to the New Theatre Royal Lincoln on Saturday 22nd – Sunday 23rd June.
Fresh from celebrating its 10th anniversary on stage and over 50 years as one of Britain’s best-loved picture books by the late Judith Kerr OBE, this production is adapted and directed by David Wood OBE. Wood is a leading writing and director, whose many successes include: The Gingerbread Man, Guess How Much I Love You, eight Roald Dahl adaptations including West End hits The BFG, The Witches and George’s Marvellous Medicine; and the Olivier Award-winning Goodnight Mister Tom.
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 furry, stripy tiger!
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, and her Mummy and Daddy in this musical slice of teatime mayhem with sing-a-long songs, oodles of magic and interactive fun. The ideal introduction to theatre for children aged three and above and the perfect treat for the whole family.
