Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear - The Musical! Nominated for an Olivier Award

Andy Stanton‘s Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear – The Musical! has been receiving critical acclaim.

  • The Stage******“All in, it’s mad as a shook-up box of frogs, crammed with hilarious lyrics and off-kilter humour. And all while delivering a beautiful message of friendship, happiness, ecological awareness, working together and loving bears. Lovely.”
  • CultureWhisper****“the trip to the fictional town of Lamonic Bibber is so worth it. The production is creative, silly, chaotic, fun, heartwarming and has something for everyone.”
  • A Younger Theatre**** – “it’s impossible not to get caught up in the fun and silliness of this intelligent children’s play.”
  • WhatsOnStage****“This makes for a satisfying and worthwhile addition to the National’s laudable track record of making quality entertainment for all the family. Bonkers, but in the best possible way.”

Congratulations to Andy.

This family show runs for the whole of the school holidays at The National Theatre. Tickets are on sale here.

The musical is based on Andy’s book, Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear.  Find all his books here, or at your local bookshop.
