"We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. We're going to catch a big one," chant hundreds of pre-schoolers in this impishly cute adaptation of Michael Rosen's award-winning children's picture book, with illustrations by Helen Oxenbury.

From Australia’s leading producer of high quality entertainment for kids and families including POSSUM MAGIC, WOMBAT STEW, MY GRANDMA LIVED IN GOOLIGULCH, STRIPEY – The Emu Chick and the latest sensation THERE’S A HIPPOPOTAMUS ON OUR ROOF EATING CAKE comes the International Touring Production of  WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT- LIVE ON STAGE! with an all Australian cast.

WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT is the wonderful story of a family out for walk and on the lookout for a growling bear - they have to march through long swishy grass, wade through thick gloopy mud and even battle a snow storm before entering a big dark cave where maybe they will finally spot the glinty wet eyes of a slobbering, gigantic bear winking at them through the blackness.

This West End and International Touring Production originally directed by Sally Cookson (UK) with an original score by Benji Bowers (UK), captures the mischievous quality of the popular book and has everything you need for family entertainment: a gently adventurous narrative, recognizable characters, singable songs and fun participation. Since the start of its first UK tour in September 2008, thousands of primary, nursery and pre-school children have enjoyed WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT. Full of rhymes and onomatopoeia, this lively and lyrical stage adaptation features catchy songs and plenty of interactive, hands-on adventure for children of all learning abilities.

This 55 minute mini-musical has the essence of fun and frolics of a father who is clearly still a child at heart, his three children including a tiny intrepid bear hunter in the making – baby is strapped to dad’s back plus the family dog and of course....a BIG BROWN CUDDLY BEAR!

Presented by: Frankston Arts Centre and Garry Ginivan Attractions (Aust) by arrangement with Kenny Wax Family Entertainment Ltd (UK)
Suits: Ages 2-8 years
