We're Going on a Bear Hunt

BASED ON THE BOOK WRITTEN BY MICHAEL ROSEN & ILLUSTRATED BY HELEN OXENBURY

WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT, the perfect theatrical outing for any young family will tour 13 venues across Australia throughout January and February 2018.

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 - WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT returns this summer due to popular demand.

The show features music, laughter, songs, rhythms, rhymes and repetitions; and with puppetry, paints, water and mud, not to mention a bear but - we’re not scared!

“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

Join the show’s intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog through the swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the squelchy mud, in search of a bear. Expect plenty of fun-filled interaction and a few surprises along the way.

MICHAEL ROSEN says of the live theatre show: ''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. It's a show full of laughter, music, silliness and thrills that I promise you will excite and delight all young children. This is a must-go show."
