Catch the last day for the performance Gruffalo, the show will be relaxed, allowing for free movement during the performance, or AUSLAN-interpreted

The Gruffalo comes to life on stage

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in this magnificent musical production based on the award-winning picture book The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. 

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party mad Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo saved Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodlands creatures? After all, there's not such thing as a Gruffalo... Is there?

After sold out seasons in London's West End and Broadway, The Gruffalo returns to Australia with charmingly catchy songs and beautiful new sets and costumes.
