We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, the perfect theatrical outing for any young family is coming to the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn on 1 and 2 July, direct from smash-hit West End and international tours.

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

Sally Cookson’s hugely inventive production set to Benji Bower’s quirky musical score is a mischievous celebration of play, utilising everyday objects and materials, to capture the imagination and catapult young audiences into the world of Michael Rosen and illustrator Helen Oxenbury’s much loved picture book.

Join our 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.

Chidren’s author 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”.
