The Tiger Who Came to Tea is presented by Arts Centre Melbourne at the Playhouse theatre from Tuesday, 2 January to Sunday, 18 January.

Hold onto your biscuits! The tea-guzzling Tiger roars into Melbourne this summer in this mischievous musical play brought to you by the team behind We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.

Join Sophie and her unexpected guest for some tea-time mayhem packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos.

This stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale is adapted for the stage by David Wood, deemed the UK’s ‘the national children’s dramatist’ and the undisputed leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children. Direct from a sell-out season in London’s West End, where it broke box office records. Kids will “squeal with delight!” (Daily Mail, UK)

One of the best-selling children’s books of all time, Judith Kerr’s picture book has played a special role in the imaginations of children around the world since 1968. So pull the book from your shelf and share the magic of this modern classic with your family this summer.
