The truly magical Olivier Award nominated West End production The Tiger Who Came to Tea is roaring into Blackwood Miners’ Institute on May 16 and 17.

Adapted and directed by David Wood OBE, Judith Kerr’s ever popular tale, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, is the ideal introduction to theatre for children aged three plus and the perfect treat for the whole family.

When Sophie and her Mummy welcome the hungry Tiger to tea, he proceeds to eat all the sandwiches, buns, biscuits and more. He even manages to drink all the water in the tap! What will Sophie’s Daddy say when he gets home?

Join the Tiger, Sophie and her Mummy and Daddy, in this musical slice of teatime mayhem with sing-along songs, oodles of magic and interactive fun.

David Wood is undisputedly the country’s leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children, whose many successes include: The Gingerbread Man, Guess How Much I Love You, eight Roald Dahl adaptations including West End hits The BFG, The Witches and George’s Marvellous Medicine; and the Olivier Award-winning Goodnight Mister Tom.

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her Mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripy tiger!

The Tiger Who Came to Tea will be at Blackwood Miners’ Institute for four performances – Tuesday, May 16 1.30am and 4.30pm and Wednesday, May 17 10.30am and 1.30pm. Tickets cost £13 and £10.50 for groups of 10+.
