Join a tiny snail on her trip ‘round the world in Tall Stories’ (creators of the stage shows The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s Child) magical, musical onstage adaptation of the legendary story.

Longing to see the world, a tiny snail hitches a lift on the tail of a humpback whale. Together they go on an amazing adventure experiencing sharks and penguins, icebergs and volcanoes. But when the whale gets beached, how will the tiny snail save him?

Follow the tiny snail’s exciting journey, as seen through the eyes of an adventurous young girl and her seafaring father. There’s storytelling, live music and lots of laughs, in a show for everyone aged four and up.

A limited number of QPAC booster cushions are available and patrons are encouraged to bring their own soft cushions (not car booster seats) to avoid disappointment.
