Gruffalo tour dates

Mum2girls - it's touring around where are you?

We are going to the Lighthouse in Poole

Mum2girls Tue 26-Apr-05 11:42:45

Sparkler - Midlands.

SPARKLER1 Tue 26-Apr-05 11:43:46

Which is your nearest theatre? Sorry I'm not very good at finding places.

NomDePlume Tue 26-Apr-05 11:44:24

I;m in the Midlands (south), Cheltenham is the best date for us.

Mum2girls Tue 26-Apr-05 11:44:53

no probs sparkler! Just had a look at the run list - all a tad too far away (i.e. over an hours drive). Ah well, maybe they'll do another tour.

Cheltenham is only 25 mins from me, mum2girls. I guess you must be further north then ?

Clayhead Tue 26-Apr-05 11:53:07

I'm going next month, hope it's good!!

Hvae just asked DH via text of he can book a day off so we can go and see it with DD at the end of May

SPARKLER1 Tue 26-Apr-05 18:22:58

We've been. It was fantastic. DD loved it. She was clapping and joining in with the audience participation of shouting and reciting the storylines. Aw and she's only three!!
She looked a little uncertain when the Gruffalo came out but soon had a smile back on her face again shortly after.

Fab, we've booked tickets for 20th May at Cheltenham as a result of this thread ! Can't wait to see it, 2.9 year old DD will love it !

My 2 boys loved it (4 and 2+3/4yrs at the time) even dd who was about 8weeks old sat glued to the performance. I loved the snake, he really made me giggle!!

SPARKLER1 Wed 27-Apr-05 13:23:42

NDP - Hope you like it!

She adores both books so I can't see it not being a hit
