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? Little Angel Theatre brings Michael Rosen’s thrilling and funny adventure to life in this entrancing puppetry production directed by Peter Glanville and with music and lyrics by renowned singer-songwriter Barb Jungr.

Adapted by Peter Glanville & Barb Jungr
Music and Lyrics by Barb Jungr
Directed by Peter Glanville
Puppet Design by Lyndie Wright
Set Design by Simon Plumridge

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury. Illustrations from the book copyright © 1989 Helen Oxenbury. By permission of Walker Books Ltd, London.
