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.
“Loved it! We loved the puppets – the wooden one so cute and Roo plus the knitted penguins. We loved the vintage film footage and how it matched the scenery. We loved the music and songs and props.”
“Excellent show! Sweet, lovely, engaging start to finish. Loved the archival footage that was used and the music chosen to go with it. So well done and very creative!! I can just imagine all the knitting of penguins!! You are always a treat! Thank you!”
