A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood… 

Tall Stories proudly present a special live-streamed version of their much-loved stage adaptation of The Gruffalo. Based on the classic book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler and presented in association with The Lowry in Salford, the production will be broadcast live from London to audiences around the world! 

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood with songs, laughs and monstrous fun for children aged 3 and up and their grown-ups. This live-streamed version will feature exciting additionalaudience interaction and a freeprintableactivity packfilled with ways to make your at-home theatre experience extra special 

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the high-spirited Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there? 

The ticket sales from The Gruffalo Live-Stream will help support the current and future work of Tall Stories and The Lowry (both registered charities).  

This performance will be broadcast live to you at home from the Tall Stories Studio in London. Our virtual doors will open at 10.45am and the performance will begin at 11.00am and last approximately an hour.
