We’re Going On A Bear Hunt

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt

May 29, 2017 @ 6:00 PM
Forge Theatre and Arts Hub

WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT is the wonderful story of a family out for walk and on the lookout for a growling bear - they have to march through long swishy grass, wade through thick gloopy mud and even battle a snow storm before entering a big dark cave where maybe they will finally spot the glinty wet eyes of a slobbering, gigantic bear winking at them through the blackness.

This 55 minute mini-musical captures the fun and frolics of a father who is clearly still a child at heart, his three children including a tiny intrepid bear hunter in the making – baby is strapped to dad’s back plus the family dog and of course....a BIG BROWN CUDDLY BEAR!

Come in your pyjamas, dressing gowns and slippers for extra fun. Adults too!

Suitable for ages 2 years - 8 years.
