Art For All is delighted to announce that we will be bringing smash-hit children’s stage show, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt, to the UAE in early March 2016. Performed by the Kenny Wax theatre company, the much-loved theatre production springs straight from the pages of Michael Rosen’s award-winning book, and has been brought to life on stage by acclaimed theatre director Sally Cookson.

This captivating story centres around a father and his four children, as they embark on a traditional bear hunt. After scampering through grassy meadows and wading through rivers and caves, the family finally come across a real bear, which promptly chases them away, despite their famous chorus line of, ‘We’re not scared!’

Hilariously funny and interactive, this enchanting show also features a fantastic musical score by Benji Bower. A fun-filled family experience, We’re Going On A Bear Hunt will captivate children and adults alike.

 *Suitable for children aged 3+. Running time: 55 minutes
