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.

Running time: 45mins

"This production has assembled a powerhouse of creative talent drawing on London children's theatre's leading luminaries to create an imaginative and highly entertaining puppet show for young and old alike."

Laura Evans Vogel, Huffington Post

"It’s probably as good a success indicator as any if you come out of a mini-musical humming the songs. Barb Jungr’s haunting, accessible melodies… are a delight… A must-see family show, which oozes melodious charm."

Susan Elkin, The Stage

"...the production values are superb…you couldn’t wish for a sweeter introduction to theatre." ****

Caroline McGinn, Time Out
