And a hat will be passed for a suggested donation of $15.
IT’S BAAAAAAAAACKKKK! Everyone’s favorite, raucous, ridiculous, ADULT show filled with bear safety. Conceived eight years ago, BEAR IT! an original show, has played to SOLD OUT Telluride audiences in 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014… and now its BACK for 2017!
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 black bear country. In 2009, Karen Guglielmone, Public Works manager for the Town of Telluride, approached Telluride Theatre to write a play for the adult community, to educate and enlighten through pure entertainment.
“By this time, we all may be getting tired of saying the same things 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,” said Guglielmone.
BEAR IT! Bear Safety for the 21st Century is part forest rangers, part revival, part musical, part bears (and much much more…) this is a MUST SEE show!
BEAR IT! is free and open to the public. As always, donations are encouraged.

BEAR IT! Is part of Telluride Theatre’s program THE OFF – smaller FREE events with BIG impact.
