A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood...

Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in Tall Stories' magical, musical adaptation of the definitive picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, celebrating 25 years this year.

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl, and the high-spirited Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there's no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?

Songs, laughs, and monstrous fun for children (and their grown-ups), in the much-loved show that's toured Britain and the world!
