Colourful characters and toe-tapping songs are heading to Dubbo for family show The Gruffalo.
The Gruffalo is based on the award-winning children's book of the same name. The story follows Mouse into the woods as she goes on the hunt for hazelnuts. Mouse runs into some dangerous characters along the way but rather than become the main course of their next meal, Mouse tells the story of an imaginary monster friend.
But what happens when Mouse comes face-to-face with the very creature she imagined?

The play will be at the Dubbo Regional Theatre and Convention Centre on Monday, March 25 for an evening show and another two showing during the day on Tuesday, March 26.
DRTCC manager Linda Christof said two of the shows sold out within two weeks.
"We have schools coming from Goolma, Narromine, Wellington, Peak Hill, Trundle and Warren," she said.
"There are still tickets available for the 6.30pm performance and I encourage families to come along for the entertaining 60 minute show."
Audiences can expect to be dazzled with the interesting sets and costumes as the show entices fans with the magic of the deep dark wood.
The Macquarie Regional Library is hosting an opportunity to meet the Gruffalo on March 20. The special storytime will run from 11am to 12pm.
Tickets for The Gruffalo are available from the DRTCC box office or website at drtcc.com.au.
