Dubai Theatre: The Tiger Who Came To Tea Returns

The Tiger Who Came To Tea returns to the UAE in November!

 Art For All is delighted to announce the return of children’s stage show, The Tiger Who Came To Tea, to Dubai Opera. The show is adapted from the bestselling book of the same name, which is currently celebrating its 50th publishing anniversary.

Author Judith Kerr was an inspirational children’s storyteller and also creator of the globally loved Mog Books. The anniversary of The Tiger Who Came To tea, is made all the poignant, as Kerr died on May 22nd 2019, aged 95.

Classic Children’s Theatre

Fans of this classic story will immediately be familiar with the sets and characters they see on stage. Producers have worked hard to recreate the stunning illustrations in the children’s picture book. This enchanting tale celebrating childhood, imagination and fun, has also been dramatized by acclaimed children’s theatre director, David Wood.

Furthermore, this visually wonderful production stays true to the much-loved tale. It also includes lots of audience participation, sing-along moments and several unexpected surprises.

The tale starts with the doorbell ringing just as Sophie and her mother are about to have tea. Who could it possibly be? It can’t be the milkman, because he’s already been. It can’t be the delivery boy, because it’s not his day to come. And it can’t be daddy, because he’s got a key…

What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!

Watch out for lots of unexpected and delightful surprises – especially the magically disappearing food! There are so many aspects we love about this products. That is why we’ve brought it to the UAE so many times. But, it feels very special to be taking part in the 50th anniversary celebrations. Make sure you stay tuned to our website as we will be announcing some special news about the show very soon.

Dubai Theatre Magic

A huge hit among children who already know and love the bestselling book, and an exciting discovery for those who are just being introduced to it, this hilarious and colourful production is an unforgettable experience.
