Family theatre show The Bear lights up MAC’s Theatre this Christmas

family theatre show the bear

This festive season, enjoy Pins and Needles’ heart-warming live stage show of the classic children’s book by Raymond Briggs.

Family theatre show The Bear features dazzling puppetry, delicious music and dozens of laughs. Pins and Needles have adapted this much-loved tale for the stage this Christmas.

The Bear follows Tilly’s visit from an enormous bear one night when she’s fast asleep. It has a big black tongue and a yawn as big as your head. But Tilly’s not scared. This story of a little girl who befriends a mischievous polar bear, this playful, funny and heart-warming tale is one of imagination and growing up.

The Bear is an unforgettable experience for the whole family and a perfect introduction to theatre for young children. So bring a bear, and join Tilly and her great big friend on a wild and magical adventure.

“The delightful notion of a polar bear about the house is beautifully explored in this witty, inventive production.” ★★★★ – The Stage
