The Gruffalo is one of the most popular children's stories. This show is a theatrical performance using Puppetry, a form of theatre that involves the manipulation of animal puppets as visual storytelling tools to captivate the attention of the audience. The puppeteer speaks in the voice of the character of the puppet and then synchronizes the movements of the puppet's mouth with this spoken part. The actions, gestures and spoken parts acted out by the puppets are typically used in storytelling.
Threatened in turn by a fox, an owl, and a snake, a little mouse scares them all off by claiming he is waiting for his monstrous friend the Gruffalo. He believes the Gruffalo does not exist but the plot twist is that it does exist and it too wants to eat him. However, the mouse survives by tricking the Gruffalo into believing he is the most scary creature in the wood.
