The Tiger Who Came to Tea – no, not the book, the live version!
We love books at our house … Charlie Moo (4yrs) has been known to recite to his sisters Megan (2yrs) and Olive (our new baby) the gruffalo word for word on many an occasion. So a trip to the theatre was also a lovely treat for us, without the stinky girls …. plus it was on the pier so an ice-cream and walk on the beach was a must ;) Although I love this story , The Tiger Who Came to Tea, we don’t actually own a copy nor am I even sure if he has read it before. So it was turning into the ultimate treat … (thank you Little Stuff!)
The play was on for 55 minutes no interval, which I did worry might be a tad long for Moo but he loved it (and secretly so did I .. ssshhh) The characters were so engaging I totally got lost in the moment myself! I did wonder how a children’s book could fill the time but with some clever activities such as the clock counting the day away (I loved hearing all the children shouting 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock ….) a an awesome tiger dance (moo was too cool to participate in this though) and lots of singing not only did the time fly but I was a bit gutted it was over!
I would fully recommend ‘The Tiger Who Came to Tea’ definitely gets a big thumbs up from Moo (and me … I have found myself humming along to some of the super catchy songs!) Check out the trailer here.
