This polite immigrant bear from Darkest Peru, wearing an old bush hat, carrying an old battered suitcase and with a love for marmalade sandwiches is one of the worlds most loved "bears". Originally created in 1958 he has become one of Englands best known childrens literary figures.

The Genesian Theatre is delighted to bring Paddington to the stage as he fumbles and tumbles his way from one misadventure to another in a production filled with music and song, and lots of fun.

Leaving his Aunt in Peru, Paddington soon finds himself alone at Paddington station (hence his name) with just a suitcase and wearing a tag which says "Please look after this bear. Thank you." Adopted by Mr and Mrs Brown, Paddington soon turns their life upside down and that of their neighbours Mr Curry and Mr Gruber with his fascination for things most of us just take for granted.

While being specifically for the younger audiences, this production is a delight for all the family!
