One of the hits of last summer’s Park Bench Theatre open air season in York is being streamed from Friday (26 Feb).
Children’s show ‘Teddy Bears’ Picnic’, was one of a hat-trick of shows staged in Rowntree Park under COVID-safe conditions with more than 1,000 adults and youngsters seeing the show over 30-plus performances.
Now Engine House Theatre is streaming the show from February 26 to March 7.

‘Teddy Bears’ Picnic’ was inspired by the song and based on an original idea by Julian Butler. The show was co-created and performed by Cassie Vallance, directed and co-created by Engine House artistic director Matt Aston.
Matt Aston said: “I’m so pleased to be finally joining the 21st century and having Teddy Bears Picnic stream online for people to enjoy at home. With the announcement of the roadmap earlier this week, there seems to be light at the end of the COVID tunnel. Hopefully Teddy Bears’ Picnic will be another of those small treats to help families get through the final days of home schooling.”
The streaming show will also feature a ‘Make your own teddy bear’ craft workshop with Cassie Vallance.
The show is suitable for everyone aged three and over.
Tickets, which allow viewing for the whole event period, are £5 and can be booked at TPE TV.
