Tiddler and other Terrific Tales returns to the London stage this summer

Tiddler and other Terrific Tales will bring four Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler books to the London stage this summer.

Tiddler and other Terrific Tales will play a limited three-week engagement at Cadogan Hall from Friday 29 July to Sunday 21 August 2022.

The production will also play a short run at the New Theatre, Cardiff from Monday 25 to Wednesday 27 July.

Prepare to go under the sea, out on the farm and into the jungle, as four terrific tales are bought to life on stage with live music, puppetry and a whole host of colourful characters from the much-loved titles: Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze. Funky moves, toe tapping tunes and giggles are guaranteed.

Tiddler and other Terrific Tales weaves together four stories by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, the multi award-winning picture book pair behind some of the world’s best loved children’s books, most notably the modern classic The Gruffalo which has been published in over 100 languages. Together their books have sold over 75 million copies.

The production is directed by Mark Kane with original direction by Sally Cookson, music and lyrics by Benji Bower, designs by Katie Sykes, lighting design by El Higgins and musical direction by Brian Hargreaves.
