Based on Britain’s best-loved picture book by Judith Kerr, the Olivier Award-nominated smash hit show The Tiger Who Came to Tea returns to the West End.
The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!
Join the tea-guzzling tiger in this delightful family show; packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos! A stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem… expect to be surprised!
Suitable for children aged 3+.
Babes in arms under 18 months sitting on an adult lap do not need a ticket – all other patrons must have a valid ticket.

The Tiger Who Came To Tea at Aylesbury Waterside Theatre
The actors were all fantastic, particularly David Scotland who took on various roles (including the audience favourite titular role) with each character being starkly and entertainingly different from the last. His facial expressions and physical comedy are worth the ticket price alone, however, with Jocelyn Zackon (Sophie) and Lizzie Dewar (Mummy) by his side, the trio were a joy to watch and complemented each other perfectly. If I had to mention any criticism, perhaps the performer’s microphone volumes could have done with being increased a bit (maybe the tech team had underestimated the raucous enjoyment of hundreds of children a little?!) but aside from that minute issue, I can only shout praise for this show.
From the innovative and magical props and set, to the wonderfully talented cast, this accurate recreation of a treasured children’s book had an audience of children and parents smiling and laughing from start to finish, to say nothing of a man in his thirties and his mum.
