We're Going on a Bear Hunt
Based on the book written by Michael Rosen & Illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
From the page, live on stage! Join our intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog as they wade through swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and thick oozy, squelchy mud, on their quest to find a bear.
07 Feb – 08 Feb
'We're going on a bear hunt. We're going to catch a big one.'
Rosen's classic, award-winning book comes to life vividly and noisily in a hugely innovative, fun-filled stage adaptation direct from London's West End and sell-out seasons in Melbourne and at the Sydney Opera House.
Expect a quirky musical score with ridiculously catchy songs, laughter, rhythms, rhymes and repetitions. Participatory scenes and plenty of hands-on mischievous adventure will capture the imagination and catapult young audiences into the world of Michael Rosen and illustrator Helen Oxenbury's much loved picture book.
Join our intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog as they wade through swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and thick oozy, squelchy mud, on their quest to find a bear. With lots of surprises along the way, it's gonna be a big one … but we're not scared!
Featuring an all-Australian cast.
'This production of We're Going on a Bear Hunt takes everyone on the journey - not under, not over, oh no - through it! - in a funny, exuberant and loving way. This is a must-go show.' Michael Rosen, Author, We're Going on a Bear Hunt
“The play was such a hit with my first-time theatre-goer, that the first words out of his mouth the next morning were “can we go on a bear hunt again?” Kidspot, July 2017
