Oh my! The Gruffalo is here in Manila!

What's a Gruffalo? 

A Gruffalo! Why didn't you know? He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws. 

Gruffalo - the world's most-beloved monster is here in Manila to entrance our little ones to the magic and wonder of world-class theatre. This will be a perfect date with your little ones as Gruffalo is shown at the RCBC Theatre from January 27 - 31, 2016. 

Based on the award-winning best seller by Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler, the Gruffalo tells of an adventurous journey of little Mouse as it walks through the deep dark wood where it meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party mad Snake on the way.

“Irresistibly charming!” The Times, UK
“Monstrous fun!” Daily Mail, UK

Armed with only a nut map and a little courage, Mouse must outwit them all, and after all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?

But who is this creature with terrible claws and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws? He has knobbly knees, and turned-out toes, and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose. His eyes are orange, his tongue is black; he has purple prickles all over his back.

You and your little ones would surely enjoy the songs, laughs, rhymes, and scary fun guaranteed by little mouse and all its "friends".

The Gruffalo - LIVE has grown into one of the biggest and most anticipated live shows in Hong Kong and Singapore, and Manila can finally welcome the production come 2016. The Gruffalo - LIVE 2016 will be performed by a professional theatre company from the United Kingdom.

According to Matthew Gregory, Executive Producer of Hong Kong-based ABA Productions, The Gruffalo - Live 2016 will provide a fun and educational experience that the whole family can enjoy. This will indeed be a perfect opportunity for children to experience the magic of live theatre and expand their knowledge of the art.

I can't wait for Baby Charley and me to watch The Gruffalo - Live 2016 at the RCBC Theatre from January 27 - 31, 2016. The Gruffalo Live - 2016 is brought to Manila by Concertus Manila, in partnership with ABA Productions and Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and with special thanks to Nickelodeon.

  1. This looks very interesting! :) I love watching plays since I was younger and even got myself into theater acting up til college. I want my children to also appreciate this performing arts. Exposing them in children's theater or plays for children would be a good start. Thanks for sharing! :)

    1. This certainly looks like an exciting play really meant for toddlers or young kids since it's based on an award-winning children's book. I love theatre and plays and broadway shows too (although i'm not much of a performer), and I would want to expose Baby Charley to these types of entertainment instead of gadgets and TV shows. You can check ticketworld to book a show. :)
      Thank you for visiting. :)


I would love to hear your thoughts!
