Half Term adventures in We’re Going on a Bear Hunt and Treasure Island

May 14, 2019

Nuffield Southampton Theatres (NST) have a host of family adventures planned for May Half Term, including a musical adaptation of the much loved picture book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt on 28 May – 2 June and the swashbuckling Treasure Island on 25 May.

Join our intrepid family of adventurers and their musical dog on a quest to find a bear in Sally Cookson’s smash hit family favourite We’re Going on a Bear Hunt. Based on the much-loved picture book byMichael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury, this mischievous celebration of play is the perfect treat for families with children aged 3 and up. Expect catchy songs, interactive scenes, plenty of adventure and a few surprises along the way.

Families can enjoy their very own free bear hunt, between 10am – 3pm on 28 May – 2 June. Enjoy the lovely grounds of the University of Southampton before or after the show; collect a map from the Box Office and find all the bears to win a prize. Just look out for the gigantic swishy swashy grass, the splishy splashy river and the thick oozy, squelchy mud!

On 25 May, audiences will be taken on an amazing and memorable trip into a world of pirates, treasure and mermaids – as one of the nation’s favourite children’s novels is brought to life with a lively modern twist. See our intrepid trio bring to life Jim Hawkins, Old Ben Gunn, Billy Bones, Sneaky Beaky the pirates parrot, mythical creatures and of course Long John Silver – with action and adventure aplenty on the horizon. Treasure Island stars TV favourites from CBeebies, Monkey TV and CBBC.
