“Little Angel’s production exposes the genius at work in the picture book, and matches it”
– Children’s Theatre Reviews
We’re going on a bear hunt.
We’re going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
We’re not scared.
A family go on an expedition of a lifetime – running down the grassy bank, wading through the cold river, squelching over the oozy mud, stumbling into the dark forest, then peering into a cave… what will they find there?
Little Angel Theatre’s acclaimed adaptation returns to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Michael Rosen’s beloved book. Brought to life with beautiful puppets designed by Lyndie Wright and original music by Barb Jungr, this production is ideal for brave hunters and bear lovers alike.
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is aimed at ages 3 – 8. With live songs and beautiful puppetry, our production builds on the simple narrative of the book to create a family show with a wide appeal. Some very small children may find the bear a little scary.
