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!


Following a smash-hit West End season, the tea-guzzling tiger is back on the road 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!
