We’re Going on a Bear Hunt announces full cast for the smash-hit production which returns to the West End at Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue from 4 July, ten years after its first UK tour. Benjamin Hills (Dog/Musician), Rebecca Newman (Girl) and Thos Wainwright (Dad) return to the cast and they will be joined by Joey Hickman (Boy).
Music, laughter, rhymes, rhythms and repetitions together with puppetry, paint, water and mud… not to mention a bear – we’re not scared! – make this fun-filled adventure the perfect theatrical outing for all young families.
Sally Cookson’s hugely inventive production, set to Benji Bower’s lively musical score, is a mischievous celebration of play, utilising everyday objects and materials to capture the imagination and propel audiences into the world of Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury’s much loved picture book.
Join our intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog as they wade through the swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the oozy squelchy mud, in search of a bear. Expect plenty of interaction and a few surprises along the way.
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is an action-packed treat for those who love the book and the ideal theatrical experience for first time theatregoers.
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt is at The Lyric Theatre 4 July – 2 September 2018.
