Ever wondered what it is to take the easy way out and make a hard job of it? That's what happened to a particular greedy croc and a particular lazy lion who rather preferred not to hunt! They venture out of the forest into the city... Many misadventures after, when they reached the city, what happens? Blimey, come discover what fun it is... On condition you necessarily bring at least one kid aged between 7 & 12. All are welcome, no need for Id card even if you're above 18. Just remember to bring that child in you.
REQUEST: Click "Going" (on our FB page: ) only if you're really coming along. Else there's always LIKE button. We're not looking to boost "Reached so many people" but look forward to your actual footfalls. Hope to see you there.
ABOUT : The Bear & Beanbag Children's Theater was set up as an internal wing of Masquerade - the performance group, to channelise our theatrical endeavours and energies that would best concern to serve the interest of the children (5 to 7 year olds) and the tweens (8 to 12 year olds). We strongly believe in a non-exclusive community and our belief in theatre is so too. However, due to constraints of certain performance requirements, there are times when children cannot be brought into theatre for grown-ups. Hence to clearly draw lines, we set up Landing Stage Youth Theatre Group in 2001, Masquerade Youth Theatre in 2009 and The Bear and Beanbag Children's in 2010. 
At Masquerade, we believe in talent development. Potential children are identified and training workshops are offered during Summer Holidays. A lot of these children between 8 and 12 keep returning to these workshops and when the reach 13, they transition into the Youth Theatre. At the Youth Theatre too similar process happens. Today we have about 5 of our group who started as children at 6 or 7 yrs and have either moved into MYT and even mainstream Masquerade. Our most experienced actor started as a 6 year old even before the founding days of The Bear and Beanbag and today has gone through 4 summers at MYT. She also occasionally makes her sallies into Masquerade.
So in case you liked our performance, think that our program sounds good, email us at and we'll get back to you appropriately.
