Whether their favourite food is roasted fox, owl ice cream, scrambled snake or Gruffalo crumble, audiences eat up this delectable tale about the adventures of a clever little mouse in a forest full of predators, which returns to Melbourne after sell-out seasons when it plays at the Athenaeum Theatre from 9-14 April 2019!

After sell-out seasons across the world, including London's West End & Broadway, don't miss this monster hit, the winner of Sydney Theatre Awards Best Production for Children (2015) when it returns to Australia for a national tour in 2019.

Adapted from the Gold Award-winning children's book, THE GRUFFALO follows Mouse into the deep dark wood on the hunt for hazelnuts. Armed with just a nut map and a very vivid imagination, Mouse runs into the smirking, wheeler-dealer Fox; an eccentric, retired Woodland Air Force General Owl; and the maraca-shaking, party animal Snake. Rather than becoming the main course of their next meal, Mouse kills their appetites with stories of an imaginary monster friend. But what happens when Mouse welcomes face to face with the very creature she imagined? In a production that has become the toast of London's West End, Tall Stories & CDP vibrantly reinvent this delightful tale through its signature style of bold, multifaceted storytelling.

A trio of bright new performers fill the forest with colourful characters and toe tapping, sing-along songs. Audiences will be dazzled with brand new sets and costumes when the return season entices fans with the magic of the deep dark wood.

This monster of a show beautifully captures the magic of Donaldson and Scheffler's adored "modern classic" (The Observer). The Australian production has attracted critical acclaim, with the Sydney Morning Herald calling it "funny, charming and smart... brings the house down", while the Courier Mail said "While your children are having a whale of a time... you will too!"
