The Berenstain Bears LIVE! Family Matters, the Musical
Saturday, January 28, 2017, 2:00 pm
Following their highly successful, sold-out off-Broadway run in NYC, The Berenstain Bears LIVE! is hitting the road. Come on down to Bear Country where Brother Bear, Sister Bear, Papa Bear, and Mama Bear sing and dance in this colorful new musical filled with fun for the whole family.
Adapted from the classic children's book series by Stan and Jan Berenstain, The Berenstain Bears LIVE! brings everyone's favorite bear family to life in a thrilling theatrical experience that kids as well as their parents will treasure for many years to come. The musical is based on 3 of the most popular books in the series: The Berenstain Bears Learn About Strangers, The Berenstain Bears and Too Much Junk Food, and The Berenstain Bears’ Trouble at School.
Appropriate for Mamas, Papas, and Young Cubs of all ages, in this live musical production filled with fun songs and dancing, the Berenstain Bears learn important life lessons. Brother gets a bad grade on a test at school. At first, he tries to hide his troubles but soon realizes opening up to his family is the best way to help solve his problems. Sister gets a little carried away as she starts saying "Hello" to everyone she meets at the Village Green. Finally, when Doc Grizzly points out that the Berenstain Bears are eating way too much junk food, it is a tough pill to swallow, especially for Papa, who rips his overalls (exposing his red polka dot underwear!) trying to show off how fit he is. Everyone's secret is revealed when Mama finds Brother's test, Papa's junk food wrappers, and Sister's new friend, Mr. Frog, who she snuck into the house from the Village Green. Using the iconic stories and imagery of the books, you and your family will see Bear Country come to life on stage while learning about the importance of honesty, health, and safety. In the end, it becomes clear to each of the Berenstain Bears that what truly matters is family.
