The Bear at Waterside Arts Centre

by Lydia (follow)
Waterside Arts Centre hosts the adaptation of Raymond Briggs' book 'The Bear' this Christmas. It is a truly magical show that all the family can enjoy.

The show started off in Tilly's bedroom where we were invited to sing and dance along with her and teddy. We were then taken on a journey of friendship, mischief and laughs. We saw the bear having a bath, try on lots of fancy dress and make a mess of the house. My daughter's favourite bit was witnessing the bear do a big poo in the middle of the floor!

The show culminated in Tilly riding the bear before it headed home and this was quite spectacular. The puppetry was simply breath taking and very heart warming to see the bear being reunited with their cub. The fake snow and magical backdrop made for a very Christmassy feel and left everyone with high spirits.

The 6pm showings are slumber performances where children and adults are invited to wear their pyjamas. They are also told to bring their favourite teddy. You can pre-book a slumber pack for 2 which includes milk and cookies for the little ones. It was so nice to see everyone embrace this with their finest festive pyjamas and warm, woolly dressing gowns.

Feedback from the Waterside Arts Centre Facebook:

"We loved every minute of The Bear from start to finish. Not only the excellent production itself (which had our 4 year old and 7 year old fidgets gripped), but the whole experience at Waterside for families. We loved that you step into the wonderland of The Bear from the minute you enter the venue with enchanting set dressing and activities all around you. We also much enjoyed exploring the Cosgrove Hall exhibition together too. Highly recommended!"

"Just watched The Bear and absolutely loved it. The actors and actresses were superb and so well matched to the roles in the story. The bear puppet was fantastic and you could see the careful work and planning that must have gone into moving it so realistically. My three and five year old were enthralled and have asked when we can go back and watch it again. Just all round lovely, thank you."
