Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales

Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

Four terrific tales – one superb show!

Under the sea, out on the farm and into the jungle, these terrific tales are woven together with live music, puppetry and a whole host of colourful characters from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s best-loved titles: Tiddler, Monkey Puzzle, The Smartest Giant in Town and A Squash and a Squeeze.  Funky moves, toe tapping tunes and giggles are guaranteed!

Is Tiddler telling the truth? Will Monkey find his Mummy? Will George The Giant make lots of friends? Can the old lady really squash and squeeze all those animals in?

This delightful production is brought to you by the team behind Stick Man Live, and is the perfect treat for all ages!

“A delight from start to finish. A room of children laughing hysterically, all totally mesmerised by the action”

“The largely under five years old audience sat enraptured throughout this thoroughly jolly affair. Funny and goes straight for the inner child”

★ ★ ★ ★ Reviews Gate

“This production should have the word “fun” stamped through it like a stick of rock. More charm than Mary Poppins teaching a kitten to cuddle a baby lamb. And like Mary, it’s pretty much perfect in every way”

Camden New Journal

“An hour-long feast of storytelling that thrills children and parents alike. A masterpiece”

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Broadway Baby

“To call this show lively would be a whopping understatement. Packed with gleeful songs and jolly good fun”


“Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s tales are lovingly brought to life.  A perfect children’s show”
