The Gruffalo tells the story of a mouse taking a walk through the woods. Mouse encounters Fox, Snake and Owl, all of whom intend to eat mouse. To evade danger mouse creates a fictional friend, the Gruffalo and describes his monstrous features. Funnily enough the Gruffalo’s favourite meal just happens to be the relevant animal. Mouse confidently walks on through the woods with the classic
“Silly old Fox/Snake/Owl, doesn’t he know? There’s no such thing as a Gruffalo”
Until mouse actually comes face to face with the Gruffalo!
There really aren’t enough words to describe how outstanding the Gruffalo was. Tall Stories Theatre Company have produced a magnificent show. The Gruffalo was funny with impeccable comedic timing. The acting was brilliant, amazing music, costumes and set. It was engaging and absolutely perfectly pitched to the audience, no wonder this was a 1000 seater sell out for the Baths Hall in Scunthorpe. The Gruffalo was quite simply exceptional and a testament to the Baths Hall for showing such outstanding children’s theatre.
