Adapted and directed by David Wood, The Tiger Who Came To Tea will play at the Theatre Royal Haymarket for its tenth season from 8 July to 1 September.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea is a charming children's book about a tiger who unexpectedly visits a young girl named Sophie and her mother, disrupting their afternoon tea by eating all the food in the house.

The show will feature Abbey Norman as Sophie, Jenanne Redman as Mummy, Benjamin Stone as Daddy, Milkman, Postman and Tiger, Myles Waby as Understudy and Sarah Horton as alternative Sophie/Mummy.

The creative team includes designer Susie Caulcutt, associate director/choreographer Emma Clayton, music arranger and supervisor Peter Pontzen, with magical illusions by Scott Penrose, lighting design by Tony Simpson and sound design by Shock Productions.

If you're looking for a family show to see in London this summer, young audiences will adore this stage adaptation of The Tiger Who Came To Tea in the West End.
