Magical theatre returns to Stratford this September with a musical retelling of a much loved classic

Children’s theatre returns to Stratford Circus Art Centre Saturday 28th September with Peace At Last. All parents will be able to relate to Mr Bear’s predicament and this musical retelling of the classic picture book is sure to delight young children aged 3-5 years.

Mr Bear can’t sleep. Mrs Bear is snoring. So he goes to sleep in Baby Bear’s room. But Baby Bear is pretending to be an aeroplane. So he goes to sleep in the living room…

Performed in a new composition for three singers, accompanied by harp and woodwind, Olivier award-winning OperaUpClose presents a new show for children, based on Jill Murphy’s much-loved picture book which has been delighting families for generations.

OperaUpClose’s mission is to make Opera more accessible for all. Young children will love exploring the new sounds of this inspiring art form as they experience Opera for the first time.

Peace At Last has been created through a series of music-making workshops with Reception Classes at Gallions Primary School, putting the children at the centre of the development process. Primary School Teachers in Hackney and Newham loved seeing it all come together. Here’s what they had to say:


“We had an amazing experience! Thank you for giving our children an experience of a lifetime.”


“It was absolutely excellent. It is the same quality as a West End show!”


“A special treat and something that as a five-year-old you’ll never forget. Inspiring a new generation.”
