New seats have just been released for “The Gruffalo’s Child”! We recommend you snap them up quick smart.

Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved children’s tale “The Gruffalo’s Child” is coming to The Art House this October. Playing in Puddles saw the wonderful “Gruffalo” performance in September and we have no doubt this sequel will be equally funny and entertaining.

Our boys loved the show so much they’ve since performed their own “Gruffalo” show multiple times on the coffee table for Granny, Nan, their kindy teachers and anyone else happy to play the attentive audience.

The tale of “The Gruffalo’s Child” has captivated many children over the years – including Playing in Puddles’ two littlest (and most discerning) reviewers. We’ve read the picture book and watched the animated film, and it was with much excitement and anticipation that we recently ventured to Laycock Street to watch “The Gruffalo” live on stage. The same talented theatre group, CDP Kids, that brought us “The Gruffalo” has created “The Gruffalo’s Child”, so we’re confident the show will be just as brilliant. Here’s an idea of what to expect…

The script includes the much-loved rhymes and phrases of the book and then expands on that to further develop the characters and storyline. The script writers have a great sense of humour and there are many laugh-out-loud lines included for kids, and just like all of the very best children’s films, plenty of comments included for the enjoyment of the adults. Songs play a part in telling the tale, and we haven’t met a child yet who doesn’t love getting a pantomime-style invitation to sing and dance along.

The cast were very talented and managed to bring a fresh take and voice to each of the multiple characters they played. The costuming and staging was clever and fun – with various props taking on multiple roles.

Worried your child might get scared by the Gruffalo or the Big Bad Mouse? We’ve taken a one year old and a two year old to see these shows and they weren’t scared – like the book, the cast cleverly make the characters funny rather than scary.

We loved the performance of “The Gruffalo” and we’re super excited to get along to see “The Gruffalo’s Child” at The Art House this October. We highly recommend you snap up tickets too.
