News  ·  Announcing Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear – The Musical!

Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear 1

Andy Stanton has adapted Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear into a raucous musical. Jim Fortune has written the music and Andy has written the book and lyrics.

Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear – the Musical! premieres at the National Theatre (the Dorfman) in summer 2019. It is directed by Amy Hodge.

“It promises an all-singing, all-dancing, occasionally-burping extravaganza for children and adults alike. Can nine-year-old Polly get Padlock the bear to safety? Or will the villainous Mr Gum and his sidekick Billy William III prevail? Full of bizarre characters, surreal whimsy and songs, this is definitely not your average family fare.”
