The theatrical adaptation of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling books, Tiddler and other Terrific Tales will play Cardiff’s New Theatre during Summer 2022.
The four tales will be brought to life with music, poetry and many characters from the established titles: Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze. The show aims to be able to bring the scenes of the books to life in a giggle-guaranteed performance!
Filled with music, puppetry and humour, audiences can through the books helping monkey find his mummy, checking out George the Giant’s new clothes, seeing how many animals the old lady can get in her house and follow Tiddler’s tales and imagination across the ocean.
