Two classic children’s tales will be brought to life next month when Room on the Broom and The Tiger Who Came to Tea come to the Arts Theatre, in Cambridge.

Tall Stories return to Cambridge Arts Theatre after the success of The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child with a magical, musical stage adaptation of the British children’s book Room on the Broom, by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

After a West End season at the Lyric Theatre, this magical adaptation is filled with songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged three and up.

Based on the extremely popular book by Judith Kerr, the Olivier award-nominated tea-guzzling tiger arrives after a smash-hit West End season.

Adapted and directed by the country’s leading writer and director of children’s plays and musicals, David Wood OBE, The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem.
