The Arkansaw Bear was written by Aurand Harris, one of America’s most beloved children’s playwrights. The play is about a young girl who wishes on a star to understand why her grandfather is dying and meets the world’s Greatest Dancing Bear, an aging circus bear, and his friend Little Bear. Funny and touching, together they realize the best way to honor the circle of life.
