Thursday 6 to Saturday 8 October (only 7 shows!)

Opera House

Special family offer just for you

Buy 3 or more tickets to The Gruffalo at The Opera House (6-8 October) and pay just $25* per ticket (3 tickets for $75*), saving at least $13.50.

The Gruffalo arrives in Wellington next week ready to entertain children (3 and up), and their adults, with songs, laughs and fun.

Based on the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler published by Macmillan Children’s Books, The Gruffalo is a firm favourite with young children and the LIVE stage show brings to life the Gruffalo, Mouse and the predators of the deep dark wood.

Sold out on the West End and Broadway, now the show comes to Wellington’s Opera House for seven performances only.

Join Mouse on an adventurous journey through the deep dark wood in this big scary monster of a show.
Whether their favourite food is roasted fox, owl ice cream, scrambled snake or Gruffalo crumble, audiences eat up this delectable talk about the adventures of a clever little mouse in a forest full of predators.

Mouse can scare hungry animals away with tall stories of the terrifying Gruffalo, but what happens when she comes face to face with the very creature she imagined!
