One of my son’s favourite books is The Tiger Who Came to Tea, written by Judith Kerr. So I couldn’t wait to take him and his sister to see the live show based on the book. Husband and I took Moozles to see it when she was three and she absolutely loved the show. And I was certain that Dubz would enjoy it as well. So last week we hopped on the District Line to Sloane Square and to the lovely Cadogan Hall to see the show.
If you’re not familiar with The Tiger Who Came to Tea, it is a lovely book about a tiger who unexpectedly comes to little Sophie’s house for tea. It isn’t a long book which translate to a 55-minute long show (no interval). Sophie, her mummy and daddy, and of course the tiger sing and dance and enthrall the audience. Abbey Norman plays Sophie, and she is delightful. The daddy (Benjamin Wells) plays all the male parts, including the tiger, and does an amazing job. Dubz was mesmerised, and couldn’t get enough of the tiger. Whenever the tiger wasn’t on stage, he kept demanding ‘more tiger’. And even at eight years old, Moozles wholly enjoyed the show.
Although the show is recommended for children three and over, there were younger children who were enjoying it. Plus, children 18 months and under don’t need a ticket and can sit on their parent’s lap. The Tiger Who Came to Tea is playing at the Cadogan Hall until Sunday, 4th September 2016. It plays at 11am and 2pm every day. Book here for more information or to buy tickets.
