Appropriate for all ages, the Berenstain Bears learn important life lessons in this live musical production filled with fun songs and dancing. Brother gets a bad grade on a test at school. At first, he tries to hide his troubles but soon realizes opening up to his family is the best way to help solve his problems. Sister gets a little carried away as she starts saying "hello" to everyone she meets at the Village Green. Finally, when Doc Grizzly points out that the Berenstain Bears are eating way too much junk food, it is a tough pill to swallow, especially for Papa who rips his overalls trying to show off how fit he is. Everyone's secret is revealed when Mama finds Brother's test, Papa's junk food wrappers, and Sister's new friend, Mr. Frog, who she snuck into the house from the Village Green. Using the iconic stories and imagery of the books, family audiences will see Bear Country come to life in this Off-Broadway musical while learning about the importance of honesty, health, and safety. In the end, it becomes clear to each of the Berenstain Bears that what truly matters is family.
