The Gruffalo, the Giant and the Mermaid with Julia Donaldson

Following their sell-out 2018 show, UK's best-selling author Julia Donaldson and a cast of four return with a brand-new show based on her much-loved books including The Smartest Giant in Town, The Singing Mermaid, The Highway Rat, and The Gruffalo. Packed full of songs, puppetry, and audience interaction, join Harry and Betty at their scarecrows wedding, go on an adventure with Cave Baby and a woolly mammoth and see if the grumpy Go-Away Bird would like a friend after all. Every performance will be followed by a book signing.
