We’re Going On A Bear Hunt

Newcastle Theatre Royal

Friday 23 – Sunday 25 February 2024


Audiences can expect plenty of interaction and a few surprises along the way as they join the intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog wading through the swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the thick oozy squelchy mud when

Full casting announced for UK and international tour includes; Benedict Hastings (Boy), Tim Hibberd (Dad) and Ben Hills (Dog/Musician) who are returning to the show and are joined by Neha Eapen (Girl) and Ross McKenna (Understudy/ASM).

Michael Rosen says of the live theatre show: ''This production of We're Going on a Bear Hunt takes everyone on the journey in a funny, exuberant and loving way. It's a show full of laughter, music, silliness and thrills that I promise will excite and delight all young children.”

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 of audiences and propel them into the world of Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury’s much loved picture book.

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is presented by Kenny Wax Family Entertainment and is created by the critically acclaimed production team including director Sally Cookson and composer Benji Bower, alongside designer Katie Sykes, lighting designer Tony Simpson, sound designer Jason Barnes and associate director and puppet designer Marc Parrett.

Music, laughter, rhymes, rhythms and repetitions together with puppetry, paint, water and mud make this fun-filled adventure the perfect theatrical outing for all young families.
