Little Charley Bear Hits the Stage

Chapman Entertainment’s Little Charley Bear is set to make his stage debut in London’s West End this Christmas.

The preschool character and his friends will appear at the Ambassadors Theatre in a 50-minute show from December 5-24.

The new live show will be based closely on the TV series, “Little Charley Bear,” which follows a stuffed bear who uses his imagination to go on adventures with the friends from his toy box.

The Little Charley Bear property now has close to 30 licensing partners including Vivid for master toy, Aykroyds for nightwear/underwear, Zap for bedding, Danilo for greetings, Penguin for publishing, Blues Clothing for apparel, Hit for DVDs and Golden Bear for hot water bottle covers.

“Little Charley Bear's debut in the West End is so exciting for us and our licensing partners,” says Vickie O’Malley, managing director, CPLG U.K. “The show will provide a magnificent Christmas treat for children and is a testament to the appeal of the show, which continues to rate well on CBeebies and has performed magnificently on iPlayer.”

“Little Charley Bear” currently airs every day on CBeebies in the U.K.
