The Gruffalo Comes to Life

Like most kids, my children are big fans of Julie Donaldson's book, "The Gruffalo".

So when I chanced upon a play staged by Tall Story at Forum the Shopping Mall, I knew I had to bring them along to watch it.

It was most amusing to see the book come to life.

My kids were captivated by how the story was told. It was largely a musical with three actors pulling off the roles of the animals. What I loved was how the different creatures had a certain persona attached to them ala the maracas shaking snake.

It was funny and terribly witty.

My kids definitely enjoyed it (All three were very enamoured that they sat right through the entire play) and I thought it was an excellent production that we would normally pay good money for (but was kindly brought to us by a mall).

They are showing twice a day on weekdays at 1pm and 5 pm. And three times on the weekend at 1pm, 3pm and 5pm. =) Get there half an hour before show time to get a seating ticket.

Go catch it!
