About the Show

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is a cheerful and joyous family show taking your imagination back to the much loved, beautifully illustrated picture book of the same name. A fun filled adventure, We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is a concoction of gleeful music, catchy repetition of rhymes, amazing imagination, creative puppetry, laughter, and sheer fun.

Applying a combination of simple theatrical techniques, this musical utilises everyday objects and materials to capture the imagination. For example, watering cans and blue buckets are used to show a river, handprints on paper to show mud, light and a stack of cardboard boxes to portray a forest, among other creative techniques. Catering to small children and their families, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt is an action-packed adventurous treat not just for kids but also an ideal theatrical experience for first time theatregoers providing a unique experience to the viewers.

The Story

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is the story of a family of adventurers, who go out hunting for a bear with their dog. Going over thick, long grass; crossing the swelling deep, cold river; facing the blizzard; and fighting in the swampy, muddy strip are some of the many challenges they face as they cross over the dense dark forest to reach a cave. As it turns out, the bear is far more dangerous than they expected it to be. Their journey back home, racing away, with the ferocious bear following them with vigour, is something that keeps the audience glued to the edge of their seats.
