Cranky Bear

Presented by Patch Theatre Company in association with Adelaide Festival Centre


Join flamboyant friends Zebra, Lion and Moose as they do their darndest to cheer up Cranky Bear in this delightful stage adaptation by Patch Theatre.

But with each extravagant attempt, the friends only manage to get on Bear’s goat even more. Who would have thought that plain and boring Sheep would be the one to save the day?

A mad cabaret of a show packed with music and laughter that will keep kids enthralled from start to finish.

They sing, they dance, and thoroughly delight a theatre full of adoring, interactive children on the importance of ironing out the grumps in life if we want happiness. Sunday Mail
