About The Tiger Who Came To Tea Live

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don’t expect to see at the door is a big, stripy tiger!

The Tiger Who Came To Tea Live at New Theatre Oxford is a musical play adapted and directed by David Wood, based on the book by Judith Kerr direct from a smash-hit West End season.

Following a smash-hit West End season, the tea-guzzling tiger is back on the road in this delightful family show; packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos! A stunning stage adaptation of the classic tale of teatime mayhem . . . expect to be surprised!
