    I took my 22 month old Son, and he not only sat through the entire performance with only the odd fidget, he was totally encapsulated, as was I!! what a wonderful production!!

    We thought this was absolutely excellent! Our favourite play for children that we've seen so far. The cast, set and costumes were great. It was easy to follow and set an engaging but chilled out pace, which we preferred as some other children's shows can be a bit manic. I will be recommending to friends!

    Brilliant production well thought out. Loved the lovely greedy tiger.

  • Review Avatar Dec 18, 2015

    Absolutely fantastic!!! The actors played their part beautifully, and there were lots of opportunities to engage the children (and parents!) in the audience. I thought it was one of the best production based on a children book. My little boy thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Entertaining production, lovely venue, friendly staff. Perfect show length too, kept the kids attention throughout.

  • Review Avatar Dec 22, 2015

    It was very disapponting. I accept it was aimed at a very young audience indeed but given this was a fairly expensive West End production the production and delivery was very amateur and lacklustre. The music and 'magic' was boring and repetitive. Looking around at the children in the audience they seemed to frequently lose interest - their parents were desperately trying to engage them in what was going on.

    My 2 1/2 year old daughter (and my husband and I!) absolutely loved the show. The perfect level of interaction, catchy songs that we are all still singing, and a wonderful way of bringing the story to life. A lovely Christmas treat!

    We - grndma and grandpa and six years old Naomi - loved the show. I've been telling this story to my children and my grandchildren for 36 years now, and the way it was told on stage was really brilliant. Thank you for a lovely Christmas eve treat

    “The Tiger Who Came To Tea” is amazing show for little children. My boys (4 years and 2 years) loved the show.. The play is full of humor and my boys were interacting with the actors and actresses. We bought the story, and my 2 years old grabbed the book, flipped the pages and said “Hungry Tiger eat all). My 4 years old tried to play/act like the scene in the play where the tiger entered to the house! The show is truly fun and Roaar. I recommend it to families with little kids.

    Our little boy loved it - his face as filled with delight. The tiger was beautiful. a fantastic experience for young theatre goers.

  • Review Avatar Jul 1, 2018

    The children thoroughly enjoyed the show, especially the large dancing tiger! My only other comment is that some adaptations of children’s books have adult humour as well to entertain the parents and this one did not. But great show for the little ones.

    Excellent show. My and my granddaughter had great time.

  • Review Avatar Jul 14, 2018

    I took my grandkids to see the show and they thoroughly enjoyed it. My 3yr. Old granddaughter asked me if I would bring her back to see the show That says it all

    Mummy I want to see again. It my son feed back ??

  • Review Avatar Jul 29, 2018

    The play was great and my son loved it - but at less than an hour not worth the £ 24 we paid per person. We regularly go to children’s theatre, anf have done since he was 2. This was the most we have paid - and I wouldn’t recommended to my son’s friends parents - value for money not worth it.

    It was such a good show. My Son loved it and so did I. I loved the way they got the audience involved with some of the singing and dancing.
