The Gruffalo to return to the West End for Christmas 2011
Date Posted: 12/09/11
The Gruffalo, which has become a staple of the West End's Christmas season, will be staged the Lyric theatre this festive season.
Between November 23rd and January 15th, the Shaftsbury Avenue venue will be home to the stage adaptation of the classic kids' tale for those taking little ones on London theatre breaks.
This Christmas season marks the fifth year in a row that the show, which has garnered praise from Time Out, The List and the Daily Mail, has been performed in London's West End.
Julia Donaldson's classic tells the story of a mouse who wards off predators by telling them tales of the not-so-imaginary monster, the Gruffalo, which lives in the woods.
Since being introduced in 2001, the stage adaptation of the picture book has travelled to as far afield as Hong Kong and Canada and has continued to delight audiences on the West End.
The Times described the show as "an irresistibly charming tale told with refreshing simplicity".
