For this Summer Holidays, CDP Theatre Producers brings Tall Stories' production of THE GRUFFALO to Perth!


Also… there’s a surprise which we’ll soon get to.


After sell-out seasons across the world, including London’s West End & Broadway, The Gruffalo finally returns to Australia! Join Mouse on a daring adventure in this magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party-mad Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner?

After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?


The Gruffalo has songs, laughs and scary fun for children aged 3+ and their grown-ups!

What to expect...

Now… what’s the surprise?

Haven’t we all watched a theatre show wishing we could watch the sequel without waiting until the next school holidays or another year for its sequel to come to Perth? Maybe it never comes…


Well… that’s not happening for the Gruffalo this Summer Holidays!


CDP is also bringing The Gruffalo’s Child in January so your little ones can really appreciate the whole story with a 2-week intermission!


Everything continues on a wild and windy night when the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the deep dark wood. After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn’t really exist... does he?


Expect a fantastic production of The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child because it’s produced by the team behind Room on the Broom and The 13-, 26-, 52-, 78- & 91-Storey Treehouses.


Both The Gruffalo (16-20 December 2022) and The Gruffalo’s Child (4-7 January 2023) are performing at UWA’s Octagon Theatre. Find tickets by visiting or with ticket prices ranging from $36 to $43.
