This Christmas the Lyric Theatre will prove that it is not just the adult population that can get in on the action in the West End with the news that The OLIVIER AWARD NOMINEE 2012 The Tiger Who Came To Tea is returning the venue that housed it in the summers of 2012 and 2014. The show is the adaptation of the well known children’s picture book from Judith Kerr and features songs penned by the acclaimed David Wood OBE, and the production will be presenting day-time performances throughout the run. So it is likely to be a wonderful place to take kids for an introduction to the West End.

In The Tiger Who Came To Tea the focus is on Sophie and her mother and one day in which nothing goes according to plan. They are sitting down to tea when they are joined by an uninvited guest – a large and stripy tiger. Naturally this leads to mayhem as the hungry feline barges into the house and proceeds to eat all of their food and all of their drink as well – pretty much anything he can get his hands on! It is not the evening they had in mind – especially seeing as Sophie can no longer take her bath! Eventually Dad comes home and they decide to eat out but when the next night comes round, only time will tell if their tiger friend is going to make a return appearance.

The original story was published in 1968 and was born from the mind of Judith Kerr, whose career has seen her pen an array of stories. From The Tiger Who Came To Tea to When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, Twinkles, Arthur And Puss and One Night In The Zoo, she has been an acclaimed author for many years.

And The Tiger Who Came To Tea is in safe hands, which has been proven with the show’s previous appearances in the capital, from the Vaudeville Theatre in 2011 to the Lyric Theatre in 2012 and 2014.

London theatres are often home to stand-out children’s shows, with summer 2015 also welcoming back The Gruffalo to the Lyric theatre, ensuring that younger audiences can become theatregoers as soon as possible.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea is at the Lyric Theatre from Wednesday 25th November 2015 and continues into the New Year.
