Terrific tail of tiger at teatime

Redditch Editorial 15th May, 2015 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016

A TEA-GUZZLING tiger will pounce into town and onto the stage when an award-winning production goes on show at Malvern Theatre this weekend.

Judith Kerr’s popular tale of The Tiger Who Came To Tea will be staged from Friday (May 15) to Sunday (May 17).

Adapted and directed by David Wood, the play tells the tale of a little girl called Sophie and her mum who welcome a hungry tiger to tea.

He proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more, even managing to drink all the water in the tap.

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 aged three plus and their families.

Mr Wood is considered to be one the country’s leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children.

His 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 2013 for Best Entertainment and Family.

Tickets are £12.88 or £10.08 for groups of ten or more. Call the box office on 01684 892277 or visit malvern-theatres.co.uk for more information.
