Meet the cast and creative team

The cast for the 2022 tour will feature Jennifer Addey as ‘Sophie’, Katie Tripp as ‘Mummy’, James Carlisle as ‘Daddy’, ‘Milkman’, ‘Postman’ and ‘Tiger’, with understudies Benjamin Stone and Tia Bunce.

The Tiger Who Came to Tea is directed by David Wood OBE, with designs by Susie Caulcutt, assistant director/choreographer Emma Clayton, music arranger & supervisor Peter Pontzen, magical illusions designed by former President of the Magic Circle Scott Penrose, lighting design by Tony Simpson and sound design by Shock Productions. Produced by Nicoll Entertainment Ltd.

David Wood said: “The live theatre experience is brilliant at sparking children’s imaginations. I believe all children should be entitled to see exciting theatre; it can make them laugh, gasp, think, and feel – and, of course, entertain them.

“Given the chance to enjoy the story, the music, the magic, the costumes and sets, the sound, the lighting, and the audience participation, in a live performance – for real, before their very eyes – I believe children’s lives are enriched, their horizons widened, and their awareness and sensitivity heightened. Theatre, like all the arts, has the power to transform, inspire and delight.”
