Five years strong! BEAR IT! an original show, played to SOLD OUT Telluride audiences 2009, 2010, 2013… and its BACK for 2014 and celebrating 10 years of Black Bear Awareness Week!

Every year, the Town of Telluride’s Black Bear Awareness Week teaches the community about our furry, intelligent neighbors and ways to stay safe in blackbear country. They approached Telluride Theatre to write a play for the adult community, to educate and enlighten through pure entertainment.

Karen Guglielmone, the Public Works manager for the Town of Telluride says,

“Hey let’s celebrate! It’s 10 years of formal, government-sponsored bear awareness! By this time, we all may be getting tired of saying the same tired sayings over and over about bear awareness. But Bear It! Stay fresh! Remember that the message is new to visitors and newbies in our community.  Stay accurate!  The continued good health and safety of bears and we humans is at stake over the long term. Remember, if we love our bears we’ll take the actions we need to keep them safe.”

MUST SEE show!
