This month will see the fantastic 'The Gruffalo's Child' come to Blackwood; the only Welsh theatre on the tour.
The Gruffalo's Child is an adaptation of the picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, and the sequel to the multi award-winning The Gruffalo, which has been the best selling children's book in the UK for five years running.
The Gruffalo's Child will come to Blackwood Miners' Institute on Monday 21st March at 1.30pm and 6pm, and Tuesday 22nd March at 10.30am, 1.30pm and 6pm.
The Gruffalo said that no Gruffalo should ever set foot in the deep dark wood... but one wild, wintry and windy night, the Gruffalo's Child ignores her father's warning and tiptoes out into the snow.
After all, the Big Bad Mouse doesn't really exist... does he?
The theatre production contains a unique storytelling style with new songs, humour and a touch of magic.
The Gruffalo's Child is produced by internationally acclaimed not-for-profit theatre company Tall Stories.
The company is renowned for presenting old, new and timeless stories in fresh and exciting ways, always acknowledging the presence of the audience.
Tickets cost £10 each, and children must be accompanied by an adult. The running time is approximately 55 minutes and the production is suitable for children aged 3+.
