If you’ve never had a tiger arrive for tea, then this loveable production is the perfect way to show the whole family how to behave the next time you have an unexpected guest.
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 they welcome the hungry tiger to tea, he proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more, even managing to the drink all the water in the tap! What will Sophie’s daddy say when he gets home?
The Tiger Who Came To Tea is the perfect slice of teatime mayhem with sing-a-long songs, oodles of magic and interactive fun for children over two years and their families.
Judith Kerr is the author of this fabulous tale of the tea-guzzling tiger. The musical is adapted and directed by David Wood OBE, who is Britain’s leading writer and director of children’s plays and musicals. David began writing while at Oxford University and his 70-plus plays for children are performed worldwide. His many successes include Spot’s Birthday Party, eight Roald Dahl adaptations, including West End hits The BFG, The Witches and George’s Marvellous Medicine; and Goodnight Mister Tom - the Olivier Award-winner in 2013 for Best Entertainment and Family.
Judith escaped from Hitler’s Germany with her family when she was nine years old. Her father was a drama critic and a distinguished writer whose books were burned by the Nazis. The family passed through Switzerland and France before arriving finally in England in 1936. Judith went to 11 different schools, worked in the Red Cross during the war and won a scholarship to the Central School of Arts and Crafts in 1945. Since then she has worked as an artist, a BBC television scriptwriter and, for the past 30 years, as an author and illustrator of children’s books.
Tickets are priced at BD15, with a family offer of four tickets for BD50, and can be purchased at Al Osra supermarkets and Havajava Cafe inside Manazel.
