The Northbrook Park District is excited to welcome back another theater production of “Wake Up, Brother Bear!” which will again delight the little ones.

The production, best enjoyed by children ages 5 and under, was a resounding success when it was mounted last spring by the talented professionals of Northbrook Theatre for Young Audiences, Northbrook Park District Visual & Performing Arts Manager Drew Kambach said.

“‘Wake Up, Brother Bear’ engages all audience members to experience theatre as active participants, contributing to the magic of live storytelling,” he said. “Our hope is to inspire a new generation of theatre lovers among our youngest community members.”

The interactive performance will have audiences watch a waterfall melt, meet a butterfly, chase an elusive fish and skate on an icy pond. Children are invited to join the action to help create an enchanting experience during the 40-minute production with no intermission.

‘Wake Up, Brother Bear!’ runs Oct. 29 through Nov. 12 at the Little Theatre in the Leisure Center, 3323 Walters Avenue.

Advanced ticket purchases are recommended. Paired tickets (child and adult) can be purchased for $25. General tickets are $15. For group tickets, contact Drew Kambach.

Tickets can be purchased at nbparks.org/theatre or in person at the Leisure Center, 3323 Walters Avenue. For more information, call 847-291-2995.
