The Gruffalo 儿童剧

The Gruffalo ---- 来自英国的儿童剧。 此题材取自原著 The Gruffalo , by Julia Donaldson.
以下简述摘自Wikipedia.
The protagonist of The Gruffalo is a mouse. The story of the mouse's walk through the woods unfolds in two phases; in both, the mouse uses cunning to evade danger.
On his way the mouse encounters several dangerous animals (a fox, an owl, and a snake). Each of these animals, clearly intending toeat the mouse, invites him back to their home for a meal. The cunning mouse declines each offer. To dissuade further advances, he tells each animal that he has plans to dine with his friend, a gruffalo, a monster-like hybrid that's half grizzly bear and half buffalo, whose favourite food happens to be the relevant animal, and describes the features of the gruffalo's monstrous anatomy. Frightened that the gruffalo might eat it, each animal flees. Knowing the gruffalo to be fictional, the mouse gloats thus:
Silly old fox/owl/snake, doesn't he know?
there's no such thing as a gruffalo!
After getting rid of the last animal, the mouse is shocked to encounter a real gruffalo – with all the frightening features the mouse thought that he was inventing. The gruffalo threatens to eat the mouse, but again the mouse is cunning: he tells the gruffalo that he, the mouse, is the scariest animal in the forest. Laughing, the gruffalo agrees to follow the mouse as he demonstrates how feared he is. The two walk through the forest, encountering in turn the animals that had earlier menaced the mouse. Each is terrified by the sight of the pair and runs off – and each time the gruffalo becomes more impressed with the mouse's apparent toughness. Exploiting this, the mouse threatens to eat the gruffalo, which flees.
The story is based on a Chinese folklore tale of a fox that borrows the terror of a tiger. Donaldson was unable to think of rhymes for "tiger" so invented one for "know" instead

我不知道此书有多好,只知道它的销量很不错。以它为题材的儿童剧想必也会有一定的水准。

我非奉承外国的月亮, 我不过是对戏剧情有独钟。我喜欢戏剧表演,当不成演员,当观众也算聊慰相思。

此戏剧分别在槟城,吉隆坡和八打灵演出。槟城的演出地点为Straits Quay,而且只有两场,差点被传单上的资料给骗了,以为连开数场。


槟城的演出时间分别是 112日, 5pm & 113日,2pm,反应好像不错,欲购从速。
