The Berenstain Bears LIVE!  at The Strand in Marietta, FoxTale Book Shoppe in Woodstock

MARIETTA, Ga. -- The Center for Children & Young Adults (CCYA) proudly presents the Berenstain Bears in Family Matters the Musical!

This show is in town for one day only -- Saturday, Oct. 5. There will be three performances: 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. at the Earl Smith Strand Theater on the Marietta Square. All proceeds benefit CCYA.

Adapted from the classic children's book series by Stan and Jan Berenstain, this special family-friendly exclusive show event brings everyone's favorite bear family to life in an exciting theatrical experience that kids as well as their parents will treasure for many years to come. As always, Bear Country is not without its complications: Brother Bear's grades are slipping, Sister Bear still has a few things to learn about making new friends, and Papa Bear just can't stop eating junk food. Thankfully, we can always depend on Mama Bear and her loving patience to help set things right.
