Following sellout performances at the National Theatre and on Broadway, the children’s cult hit rhyming story about a mouse and a monster, comes to Richmond Theatre in a big scary beast of a show.

Join Mouse on an adventurous journey through the deep, dark wood in a magical, musical adaptation of the Blue Peter award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Upon meeting a singing and dancing fox, a mustachioed Mexican snake and various other potential predators, the quick-thinking Mouse scares the hungry animals away with tall stories of the huge, terrifying Gruffalo. But what happens when he comes face to face with the very creature he imagined?

Songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged three and up… and their adults!
