About the Show Less...

Music, laughter, songs, rhythms, rhymes and repetitions; with puppetry, paints, water and mud, not to mention a bear - we’re not scared! Read More >

Michael Rosen’s award-winning book We’re Going On A Bear Hunt is brought vividly and noisily to the stage in director Sally Cookson’s fun-filled adaptation set to Benji Bower’s versatile lively score.

Join our intrepid adventurers on their quest to find a bear; as they wade through the gigantic swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the thick oozy, squelchy mud! Expect catchy songs, interactive scenes and plenty of hands-on adventure – plus a few special surprises!

Suitable for theatregoers aged 3 and older.
