This modern favourite is being brought to our doorstep by Art For All! An imaginative tale, walking the audience through the journey of four youngsters and their fun-loving father as they embark on a sensory-filled adventure to find a bear (as the title suggests).

With plenty of singing, action, and even interactive scenes, this one will definitely get the littles excited!
