We’re Going On A Bear Hunt 

The perfect theatrical outing for any young family looking for adventure

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt is coming to the Adelaide Festival Centre just in time for the April School Holidays. This is the perfect theatrical outing for any young family looking for adventure. 

Live on stage in AFCT’s Dunstan Playhouse from 27 to 29 April, this UK production will be presented for the first time in Adelaide, direct from a smash-hit international tour and sold out seasons in Brisbane, Melbourne and at the Sydney Opera House.

The show features music, laughter, songs, rhythms, rhymes and repetitions, puppetry, paints, water and mud and A BEAR! But – 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 the show’s 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. 

We’re Going On A Bear Hunt is presented by AFCT, AKA and GGA in association with Kenny Wax Family Entertainment Ltd. It is created by the critically acclaimed production team comprising original theatre director Sally Cookson, designer Katie Skyes, Benji Bower (music and lyrics),  Tony Simpson (lighting design),  Jason Barnes (sound) and puppet designer and Associate Director Marc Parrett and features an all-Australian cast.

Adult $39.90 | Concession $29.90 | Family of 4 $140.00 | Subscribers $34.90
