Event Reviews

  • The View From The Stalls

    Magical things happen on stage when The Tiger Who Comes To Tea comes through the door - things which can't quite be explained like the food on the plates and in the fridge suddenly disappearing!

    This is an Olivier Award nominated musical version, direct from the West End, which brings to life Judith Kerr's very popular story and is something which is already no doubt familiar to the children in the audience. There is loads of audience participation here, singalongs with the three cast members (just like in a panto, which is also how the Tiger first appears - "he's behind you!") to various sequences including the ticking of the clock, which is used to show the progression of the day from a typically chaotic breakfast to teatime when the loveable, colourful (and huge!) Tiger appears.

    The Tiger soon begins to eat and drink them out of house and home (hence the disappearing food) and when switching on the radio, starts a dance routine which had all the kids - and adults - in the audience up on their feet participating.

    It's great to have short shows like this based on stories which children already love - this comes in at around 55 minutes, which is long and lively enough to ensure that boredom does not set in the young audience - and barely a single rush to the loo during the show!

    The show runs with two more performances a day on Wednesday and Thursday and is proving very popular as a holiday treat for the kids (and adults!).
