Gruffalo in SA

The National Arts Festival is delighted to present the South African version of Tall Stories’ musical  adaptation of the award-winning picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler: The Gruffalo

The show, with an all-Grahamstown cast, premiered in Cape Town in September 2016 as preparation for a national tour, playing to packed houses and selling out 6 of its 11 performances.  Directed by Tara Notcutt, the South African version of The Gruffalo: Live on Stage! features all the characters, songs and storyline from the smash hit West End production, with a uniquely local feel.

The award-winning ensemble cast includes Nombasa Ngoqo, Sisonke Yafele, Ayanda Nondlwana and Mandisi Heshu.
