The Berenstain Bears LIVE! in Family Matters, the Musical

$39.95 - $64.95

Adapted from the classic children's book series by Stan and Jan Berenstain, The Berenstain Bears LIVE! in Family Matters, the Musical 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. As always, Bear Country is not without its complications: Brother Bear's grades are slipping, Sister Bear still has a few things to learn about making new friends, and Papa Bear just can't stop eating junk food. Thankfully, we can always depend on Mama Bear and her loving patience to help set things right. The newest Off-Broadway musical for Mamas, Papas, and Young Cubs in NYC, The Berenstain Bears LIVE! will give boys and girls of all ages the chance to fall in love with these characters, just as their parents did when they were growing up.

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.
