Based on the book written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, celebrating 30 years of the classic story with a UK tour.
We’re going to the theatre
We’re going to see a Bear Hunt
What a beautiful Play!
We’re not scared…
Ten years after its first UK tour, the smash-hit production of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the much-loved picture book by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury with a 2019 UK Tour, coming to The Hawth on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 May. Sally Cookson’s hugely inventive production, set to Benji Bower’s lively musical score, is a mischievous celebration of play, utilising everyday objects and materials to capture the imagination and propel audiences into the world of the family favourite.
Join our intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog as they wade through the swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the oozy squelchy mud, in search of a bear. Expect plenty of interaction and a few surprises along the way. Music, laughter, rhythms, rhymes and repetitions together with puppetry, paint, water and mud… not to mention a bear – we’re not scared! – make this fun-filled adventure the perfect theatrical outing for all young families.
Michael Rosen: ”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.”
The Hawth are also delighted to be offering a Relaxed Performance of the show on Wednesday 8 May, 10.30am. This performance will be adapted to reduce anxiety and create a supportive atmosphere for people with autism spectrum conditions, learning disabilities and other sensory and communication disorders.
