Story time came to life at Port Macquarie library on August 9 when a big, brown, cuddly bear made a surprise visit.
Adapted from the picture book written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, the full cast of the stage production We’re Going on a Bear Hunt brought a children’s classic to life.
We’re Going On A Bear Hunt is the wonderful story of a family out for walk and on the lookout for a growling bear – they have to march through long swishy grass, wade through thick gloopy mud and even battle a snow storm before entering a big dark cave where maybe they will finally spot the glinty wet eyes of a slobbering, gigantic bear winking at them through the blackness.
This mini-musical captures 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 – baby is strapped to dad’s back plus the family dog and of course... a big brown cuddly bear.
We’re Going on a Bear Hunt will be performed at the Glasshouse on August 9 and 10.
