The Gruffalo’s Child. BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, presents The Gruffalo’s Child, in conjunction with Tall Stories. One wild and windy night, The Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the snow. En route she meets the same fox, owl and snake that her father met some years before. Each points her in a different direction, so by the time the little Gruffalo gets to the heart of the wood, she is beginning to have serious doubts about the scary mouse that her dad has told her about. Just about to give up and go home, she sees a little mouse and decides to stop for a mousey snack. But Mouse is not in the mood to be eaten and comes up with an ingenious plan to scare the little Gruffalo away. Standing on a twig as the moon shines, Mouse casts a big bad mousey shadow on the ground – and this is enough to send the Gruffalo’s Child running home.
Come for songs, laughs and scary fun. Adapted from the picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler and presented by Tall Stories.
