An intimate concert especially for bears, their children (and their grown-ups), Bear With Me is playful, ukulele-ful and made for joining in. It’s about looking after, and being looked after.
Sometimes it’s no picnic being a teddy bear but being cherished makes the rougher moments bearable.
Bear With Me plays with the warm and fuzzy, exploring with music and performance the joy and turmoil of everyday life. Bring your bear or be square!
Bear With Me is produced by Metro Arts and is available to tour.
“This well-crafted show is splendid in its simplicity.”
– Paul Rodda, The Barefoot Review, 2015
“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…”
“A unique and adorable production”
– Libby Parker, The Upside News, 2015
“There is no right or wrong in this enjoyable show – just fun, music and laughter.”
– Greg Elliot, InDaily, 2015
“…this show carries a charm that has you humming the tunes all the way home.”
– Kerry Cooper, Stage Whispers, 2015
“I quite enjoyed watching a little boy get up and enthusiastically dance to the music throughout the Bear with Me performance. I was watching him more than the performers. He also invited people around him to join in having a ‘cuppa’ with him and his bear. He received many compliments on his dancing and manners after the show.”

“Bear With Me was one of the best, most well thought out shows I have ever attended. Absolutely brilliant!”
