Rag & Bone Puppet Theatre is thrilled to announce the world première of a new show, The Last Polar Bears, based on a book by Harry Horse. The Last Polar Bears is the funny, moving story of a Grandfather’s unlikely trip to the Arctic with his opinionated dog, Roo. It features live action, live music and puppets – including 20 knitted penguins and of course, a talking dog. The show also has a multi-media feature, with actual film footage of Henry Larson’s famous Arctic expedition on the St. Roch. An intricate scale model of the St. Roch is used for the Grandfather’s ship, The Unsinkable. There’s also footage of gorgeous Arctic landscapes, northern lights and adorable real animals.
