Theatre shows for children

Local Mums recommend the best children’s theatre shows in our area

“I highly recommend The Everywhere Bear at Polka Theatre in Wimbledon to all Local Mums. My son, age four and daughter, six, both absolutely loved this sweet tale which is a fantastic adaption of Julia Donaldson’s excellent book. I was worried my son would not be able to concentrate throughout the show but he was mesmerised from start to finish and has not stopped talking about it since. My daughter loved every minute of it too. It was just what we needed to start the holidays off on a happy footing. Sweet, touching and brilliantly produced theatre in a wonderful setting.”
Anna Walerka, Local Mum

The Everywhere Bear

By Julia Donaldson and Rebecca Cobb

Adapted and directed by Peter Glanville

Polka Theatre

Until 26 August

Ages 3-6

Artistic Director of Polka Theatre, Peter Glanville, directs Amy Tweed and Daniel Harlock running until 26 August.†

The Everywhere Bear has a home on a shelf but he doesn’t spend very much time by himself, for each boy and girl in the class is a friend and he goes home with one of them every weekend.†

A tender tale from the creators of The Paper Dolls, The Everywhere Bear has a wonderful time with the children in Class One, but one day he gets more than he bargained for when he falls unnoticed from a backpack and embarks on his own big adventure! He’s washed down a drain and whooshed out to sea, rescued by a fishing boat, loaded onto a lorry, carried off by a seagull... How will he ever make it back to Class One?

This captivating and beautiful new story from best-selling author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Rebecca Cobb springs to life with rhyme, original music and delightfully expressive puppets in Polka’s fun and exciting stage adaptation.
