The Grand 1894 Opear House Presents WE'RE GOING ON A BEAR HUNT Today
The Serious Fun Children's Series at The Grand 1894 Opera House continues with We're Going On A Bear Hunt. This fun-filled adventure will take place today, February 5 at 10am. Based on Michael Rosen's award-winning book "We're Going On A Bear Hunt" , this delightful entertainment is suitable for young children whether they are readers or not.
Director Sally Cookson brings the story vividly and noisily to the stage as a family of adventurers set out on a quest to find a bear. The family uses a range of descriptive vocabulary that allows the audience to imagine being on the hunt themselves. Gigantic swishy-swashy grass, a splashy-splashy river, and ooey-gooey mud are just a few of the obstacles the family encounters on their fantastic journey.
The Guardian writes "A fun-filled frolic", while Sky Arts claim, "Quite simply, the best show I've ever seen." Expect catchy songs, interactive scenes and plenty of hands-on adventures - and maybe even a special surprise or two.
The children's series performances have been designated The Harris L. Kempner Children's Series in honor of Mr. Kempner's lifelong commitment to youth, education and The Grand's programming. They are supported in part by donations to the Grand's Permanent Fund in his memory. Additional support is provided by the following: Dr. Leon Bromberg Charitable Trust, The Commodore Hotel on the Beach, Jamail Galveston Foundation, Robert W. & Pearl Wallis Knox Foundation, Marathon Petroleum, Permanent Endowment Fund Moody Memorial First United Methodist Church, Target, Saltwater Grill, Bush and Associates, Dr. James Grant, and Texas Commission on the Arts.
