BEAR WITH ME – Theatre Review, 8th July, Space Theatre

Bring your kids, bring your bears and bring your smiles, because you’ll need all of them at Windmill Theatre’s Bear With Me this school holidays.

A unique and adorable production, Bear With Me is a two-man show with Tyrone and Wesley playing songs about teddy bears on a ukulele and a ukulele bass, while the audience and their bears interact.

With simple songs kids can sing along to, and some clever puns for the adults, the 45 minute production, written by David Megarrity, and directed by Michael Futcher is a perfect school holiday activity.

Tyrone and Wesley have the audience engaged from start to finish with their catchy tunes, interactive multi-media display, and delightful storytelling.

As well as being a playful and entertaining show, Bear With Me is an excellent introduction to theatre for little ones, as Tyrone gently demonstrates how to behave, and enjoy a play, in a performance space.

Tyrone and Wesley, are both particularly talented musicians and storytellers, which creates a wonderful theatrical experience for kids aged around 3-6.

But don’t listen to me, when you can hear it from some experts in the field! The Upside News’ junior reporters, Niamh and Keeley Trainor share their thoughts below.
