Bear Snores On

23 March – 21 April 2024
Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre

‘In a cave, in the woods in his deep,
dark lair, through the long, cold winter
sleeps a great brown bear.

A winter frost covers the trees of Regent’s Park, a snow storm is brewing and a tiny Mouse is looking for somewhere warm and safe to hide…a nearby cave could hold the answer but what else does it hold? Something big and brown and fluffy?

Grab your backpack and join Mouse on a magical theatrical journey as she finds fun, courage and a whole bunch of new animal friends.

With book by Cush Jumbo (Josephine and I, Bush Theatre, London and Public Theatre, New York) and Katy Sechiari (Sweeney Todd, The BRIT School) and music & lyrics by Harry Blake (The Tempest reimagined for everyone aged six and over, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre), Bear Snores On is inspired by the beloved picture book, for anyone aged 4+ with a sense of adventure. 

In spring 2024, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre will emerge early from our annual hibernation for Bear Snores On. This new theatrical experience for families will travel from the theatre lawn to an indoor pop up space within the theatre grounds.

Presented in association with Cush Jumbo.
