We're going on a Bear Hunt

Thu, Nov 21, 2019

Gee, I hope I find a bear! Join a variety of characters on their journey through the season of Fall as they explore the sights, sounds, and smells of autumn. This interactive performance will involve sensory experiences as we use our imaginations to travel to the bear’s den. Hike over mountains, crawl through mud, swim rivers and climb tall trees in this outdoor adventure! We can’t go over it, can’t go under it, can’t go around it, we have to go through it! This show is geared for audiences 0-5 years old and their caretakers.
