Once in a while, along comes the perfect picture book, bearing the hallmarks of a true classic. Lisa Stubbs’ Lily and Bear is one such book, adapted for the stage with songs and music.

Following its 2022 performances in the Royal Albert Hall’s Elgar Room, Lily and Bear makes a welcome visit to the Lyric to entertain your under 6 year olds.

This musical for children with animation and puppets tells a truly magical tale about the give and take of friendship. Lily likes nothing better than to imagine and draw the things she loves. She draws cats and birds, boats and houses, and one day she draws a bear who comes to life. Lily and Bear play pirates, sing, and partake in all manner of bear activities, discovering the joys of sharing along the way.
