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. Live on stage in the Adelaide Festival Centre’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.
