THE TIGER WHO CAME TO TEA ANNOUNCES CASTING FOR WEST END SUMMER SEASON AT THEATRE ROYAL HAYMARKET

The Olivier Award nominated stage production of The Tiger Who Came to Tea today announces casting for this year’s summer season at Theatre Royal Haymarket, commemorating the centenary of its beloved author, the late Judith Kerr OBE. The cast includes: Abbey Norman (Sophie), Jenanne Redman (Mummy), Paul Sockett (Daddy, Milkman, Postman, Tiger), Reece Kilminster (Understudy, ASM) and Abi Harvey (Understudy, Wardrobe).

A musical play adapted and directed by David Wood OBE, based on the classic tale by Judith Kerr OBE, The Tiger Who Came to Tea returns for its third consecutive summer season at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket, opening on Monday 10 July and playing until Sunday 3 September 2023.

The touring production of The Tiger Who Came to Tea continues its nationwide tour until September, with new UK and international dates soon to be announced for 2024.

Hailed as Britain’s best-loved picture book, Judith Kerr’s timeless classic The Tiger Who Came to Tea is now entering its 55th year, selling over 5 million copies since it was first published in 1968. The stage show premiered in 2008 and has since toured nationally and internationally, including Christmas seasons at the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne Arts Centre with sold out dates in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and Bahrain. In 2012 the production was nominated for the Olivier Award for ‘Best Family Entertainment’. This will be its 9th West End season.

Bringing the nation’s favourite tea-guzzling tiger to life on stage, this musical slice of teatime mayhem entertains with sing-a-long songs, oodles of magic and interactive fun. It’s the ideal introduction to live theatre for children aged three and above and the perfect summer treat for the whole family.

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 furry, stripy tiger!

Directed by David Wood OBE, with designs by Susie Caulcutt, assistant director/choreographer Emma Clayton, music arranger & supervisor Peter Pontzen, magical illusions designed by former President of the Magic Circle Scott Penrose, lighting design by Tony Simpson and sound design by Shock Productions.
