The Tiger Who Came To Tea

Judith Kerr's popular children's book takes to the stage


Don’t miss this charming stage adaptation of Judith Kerr’s classic tale about a large, furry visitor at teatime. Little ones will love the bizarre storyline that tells of a little girl’s encounter with a giant and very hungry tiger. Far from Sophie being afraid of the beast who turns up at her door just before dinner, she is the personification of politeness and invites him in. But the tiger has such a huge appetite, that he literally eats Sophie and her mum out of house and home. This delightful family show is packed with oodles of magic, sing-a-long songs and clumsy chaos! Not only that, but the whole shebang has been directed by David Wood OBE, the UK’s leading writer and director of plays and musicals for children. His many successes include Shaun the Sheep, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Gingerbread Man, The BFG, The Witches, Meg and Mog, Spot and Babe the Sheep Pig.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea is at the First Group Theatre at the Madinat Jumeirah, from February 21 – 25. Performance time is 55 minutes. Recommended for children aged three and up. For ticket details visit
