The Christmas Countdown has begun with just four weeks until Raymond Briggs’ much loved children’s book The Bear takes to the stage at Waterside in Sale, from December 5th – presented by Pins & Needles Productions.
Ever wondered what it would be like to sit on a polar bear’s lap? Or ride on its back? Have you ever tried to give a bear a bath? Or clear up its poo?! Looking after a bear is exhausting stuff.
One night when she’s fast asleep, an enormous snowy white bear climbs into Tilly’s bedroom. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly’s not scared.
With dazzling puppetry, delicious music, dreamy storytelling, and dozens of laughs, The Bear is an unforgettable experience for the whole family and a perfect introduction to theatre. So come join Tilly and her great big white friend on a wild and magical adventure.
This heart-warming and humorous wintry tale is brought to you by Pins and Needles – the team behind the hugely successful Father Christmas – who are delighted to be bringing to life another of Raymond Briggs’ much-loved storybooks.
The Bear previews on Tuesday 5th and Wednesday 6th December and officially opens from Thursday 7 December until Saturday 6 January, with both schools and public performances (times vary – check out thebearlive.com for a full breakdown). This production is recommended for children aged between 3 and 11.
