Three Bears

Set and Costume Design

“The set was simple, the cast minimal…I braced myself for the inevitable wriggling and complaining, but it didn’t happen. My daughter listened. Intently. For an hour!…I suppose when a show is simple and skillful, that’s when the magic happens. It’s easier to hurl a million second-rate things at a person than one brilliant thing. Also, it’s Christmas, and there was a very moving part during the performance when the set was lit with twinkling stars and Owens introduced Ursa Major and Ursa Minor – the bear constellations. Is there anything more grounding and yet more magical than little faces looking up in wonder at the stars? I think not.” — Daily Info
