WE'RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT extends West End run at Lyric Theatre due to huge demand


BASED ON THE BOOK WRITTEN BY MICHAEL ROSEN & ILLUSTRATED BY HELEN OXENBURY

LYRIC THEATRE, Shaftesbury Avenue from 3 July 2013
LIVE ON STAGE

EXTENDS RUN DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND

TICKETS FROM £12


WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT extends its Summer West End run before it has even opened!! The perfect theatrical outing for any young family arrives in the West End at the LYRIC THEATRE, SHAFTESBURY AVENUE from WEDNESDAY 3 JULY and will now run to SUNDAY 8 SEPTEMBER.

With an extra 1000 seats added for annual theatre event KIDS WEEK which initially sold out in the first 24 hours and the season being extended for one extra week until SUNDAY 8 SEPTEMBER, WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT is proving to be an exciting summer theatrical hit – it really is the one show that families will not want to miss!

Music, laughter, songs, rhythms, rhymes and repetitions; 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. 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."
