Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre announces world premiere stage adaptation of ‘BEAR SNORES ON’

Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre has announced the world premiere stage adaptation of Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman’s beloved children’s book, BEAR SNORES ON, with book by Cush Jumbo and Katy Sechiari, and music & lyrics by Harry Blake.

The production, directed by Cush Jumbo and Katy Sechiari, runs from 23 March to 21 April 2024, marking Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre’s first production at the venue outside of its summer season.

‘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.

BEAR SNORES ON invites audiences of 4+ and their families to travel from the theatre lawn to a new and specially created indoor pop up space within the theatre grounds.

Creatives include: Harry Blake (Musical Director), Rebecca Brower (Set & Costume Designer), Joshie Harriette(Lighting Designer), Lotte Hines (Casting Director), Cush Jumbo (Co-Director), Maia Kirkman-Richards (Puppet Designer & Director), Ebony Molina (Movement Director), Katy Sechiari (Co-Director) and Luke Swaffield (Sound Designer)

BEAR SNORES ON tickets go on sale to Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre members today, Thursday 23 November 2023 at 11am; public booking opens on Tuesday 28 November 2023 at 10am.
