Bored at home with nothing to do, Nora is sent out to play in the garden in search of a tiger. Have your imaginations at the ready as our story unfolds and we see Nora’s world grow around her. 

Following sold out, highly acclaimed tours, Flock Theatre Makers will be bringing their musical-theatre adaptation of Lizzy Stewart’s award-winning children’s book ‘There’s a Tiger in the Garden’ to Jackson’s Lane this Autumn.

Using puppetry, imaginative design and music – audiences are invited to join Nora as she discovers dragonflies as big as her head, plants that can eat you (and your toy giraffe) whole, a polar bear that likes fishing and maybe, just maybe, a tiger in the garden. Exploring the power of the imagination, we invite families to follow Nora as she discovers the wonders hidden beyond the shrubbery. Come and listen, play and enjoy the brilliance of this story brought to life.

Working closely with the author, this much loved book has been turned into a theatre piece which promises fun for all the family.

What are ‘Pay What You Can’ tickets?

We believe that that arts should be accessible for all. For this reason some of our shows and events this year will be ‘Pay What You Can’, meaning that you decide how much you can or want to pay. This expands access to the arts for those who may not have been able to participate otherwise, or gives others the chance to support those who cannot by paying a bit extra.

You will see multiple prices available for each show or event. You can select whichever price you can afford or would like to pay – thank you.

Accessibility: To support the production, we have 3 simple sign videos exploring some of the songs and themes from the performance. Resources also include a visual story guide.

Age Guidance: 3+
