A mouse took a walk in a deep dark wood...

In this case, all the way to the Arts Depot in North Finchley, where the Grufallo is playing until 6 January.

We were very excited by the return of The Gruffalo to the theatre this Christmas! You and your children are invited to join Mouse on an adventurous journey through the deep dark wood in this magical, musical adaptation of the award winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, presented by Tall Stories. 

This is definitely an entrancing, funny and energetic interpretation of the classic book. The 3 cast members are wonderfully aligned, using great physical interaction to create the scenes from the book. And the representations of the different animals- wheeler-dealer Fox, an eccentric old Owl and a maraca-shaking Snake -  are wonderfully characterised with lots of humour- making up for slightly average singing! We particularly loved the snake! There was plenty of audience interaction too which of course the kids loved.We would definitely recommend the show for some Christmas fun.

For children 3+. Performances until 6 January. Box office here.
