Pete Stays Home

Adapted by Renata Allen from the book by Karra McFarlane and Kim Hankinson

‘We must be patient and hide away, until the sun shines bright another day.’

Pete is a happy, sociable young bear who enjoys going to school, playing with his friends and spending time with his grandparents. But when winter comes, Pete must stay inside with his mum. How will he feel when the day to leave his cave finally arrives?

This sweet story is suitable for all ages and features a cast of three actor-musicians, original songs, dance and interactive storytelling – a perfect early theatre experience for children, and an opportunity for families to share their feelings about having to stay at home during the recent lockdown.

Designed for early years and Key Stage One (KS1) children, the play Pete Stays Home was adapted by Renata Allen from a book by Banbury based author Karra McFarlane.

Recommended ages: 4 – 7 years (and their grown-ups)


North Wall Relaxed Environment Performances

These performances are relaxed environment performances; they take a laid-back approach to noises and/or movement from the audience. This means everyone has permission to relax and respond naturally. Everyone is free to make noise or leave and re-enter the theatre at any point throughout the performance. We have a chill-out zone on each floor where people can go if they would like to leave the auditorium.
