The Boy, The Bear, The Baron, The Bard

The Lord Mayor's Children's Concerts

Presented by Brisbane City Council

When a boy jumps the fence to retrieve his rogue soccer ball, he unwillingly finds himself on the stage of the world’s most famous theatre with The Bard by his side.

What follows is pure midsummer magic framed by a whimsical chase through the streets of Elizabethan London.

THE BOY, THE BEAR, THE BARON, THE BARD is an original adaptation of Gregory Rogers’ much-loved picture book by award-winning theatre company, shake & stir.
