The Tiger Who Came To Tea Review

One adult and four children in a theatre!  I have to admit I was wondering what was crossing my mind as I boarded the train on Sunday morning to go and watch The Tiger Who Came To Tea.

We arrived after a relatively pain free journey to be greeted at the doors and lead to out seats at the beautiful Lyric Theatre.

With our tiger souvenirs in hand and snacks at the ready the show began and the children’s attention was immediately drawn to the stage.

The older ones already knew the story and could preemt the arrival of each lovable character as they appeared; and the younger two were glued to the stage to see what was going to happen next.

The story of a mother and daughters day at home that is turned upside down by the arrival of a tiger making a visit for his tea is kept to throughout the play with some catchy songs and dances added to make the production even more special.

There was lots of interaction with the audience and mine all loved joining in with the catchy songs, counting down on the clock until each visitor arrives at the door and taking to their feet to join in with dancing.

I had a range of ages from thirteen to nearly two and they all thoroughly enjoyed the show.  My biggest worry was my youngest who normally can’t sit still for more than five minutes but I needn’t have worried at all as he watched and joined in with the whole show without a murmur.

The show is only running until the 10th January and I would highly recommend giving your little ones a Christmas treat to remember by taking them along to experience the wonderful adaptation of a real children’s classic.
We were gifted these tickets for the purpose of this review and they are all my own honest opinions.
