Bühnenfassung von Oliver Wronka / Ab 5 Jahren
But then again, the biggest, strongest monster in the woods is terribly scared of a tiny mouse. A mouse? That’s right! The gruffalo has seen with its own eyes how all the animals in the woods freeze in terror when they see this particular little mouse. Well, appearances can be deceptive. On the fateful day that the mouse and the gruffalo meet for the first time, the cunning mouse has had quite an adventurous little walk. It loves nothing more than a brisk stroll in the woods on a nice and sunny day like this. But the clever rodent soon realises that some animals in the woods would love to have it for dinner – and not as a guest. The mouse really doesn’t feel like being eaten, so it tells all the hungry animals that it has been invited to dine with the gruffalo; and it describes this dangerous creature very closely. The fox, the snake and the owl have never seen a gruffalo before, but they decide that it is wiser not to cross the friend of such a scary monster. There’s no such thing as a gruffalo, because the mouse has invented it – or so it thinks. Imagine the mouse’s surprise when it comes face to face with a real gruffalo!
Duration: 1 hour / no breaks

Das Thema Fantasie wird nicht nur bei der Ausstattung (Höhepunkt ist das Labor des Geräuschemachers), sondern auch bei der musikalischen Untermalung großgeschrieben.
