Who likes bears? Everyone!

Well.. maybe not not quite everyone. Because Mr Gum hates children, animals, and any kind of fun whatsoever, so when a big bear strolls into town trouble can't be far off.

Can nine-year-old Polly and her buddies help Padlock escape Mr Gum's clutches? Or will Mr Gum succeed in delivering him to the gruesome butcher?

Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear is an all-singing, all-dancing (and occasionally all burping!) extravaganza based on the award-winning children's books by Andy Stanton, full of joyful, utterly idiotic songs.

Note: This show is suitable for children aged 7 and over.
