“charming and fun........perfect for kids 8 years and under ” – The Melbourne Age

“it is delicious to hear the crowd squeal....wholesome cheeky fun for young families ” –
The Melbourne Herald Sun


A furiously fun, mini-musical that will get the whole family wriggling along in their seats.

WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT is the much loved story of a family out for walk and on the lookout for a growling bear. Join in the adventure as they march through long swishy grass, wade through thick gloopy mud and battle a snow storm before entering a big dark cave where we might finally spot the glinty wet eyes of a slobbering, gigantic bear winking at us through the blackness.

Warm your heart and tickle your fancy with the fun and frolics of a father who is clearly still a child at heart, his three children including a tiny intrepid bear hunter in the making, plus the family dog and of course....a BIG BROWN CUDDLY BEAR!

From the makers of  POSSUM MAGIC, WOMBAT STEW and THERE’S A HIPPOPOTAMUS ON OUR ROOF EATING CAKE comes this exciting new live production WE’RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT!
