Heya.

Chippendale, The Gruffalo, 10am, 12pm and 3pm, $39, Age: 3+

Chippendale, The Gruffalo, 10am, 12pm and 3pm, $39, Age: 3+

A mouse took a stroll through the deep, dark wood …

After sell-out seasons across the world, including London’s West End & Broadway, The Gruffalo returns to Australia in an all new production!

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in this magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book 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 save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?

Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3+ and their grown-ups…

“funny, charming and smart… brings the house down.” – Sydney Morning Herald
