“You go everywhere with that bear,” a friend said. Yes, last week Inverness where Cradlehall Primary presented a musical performance based on Wojtek, War Hero Bear, from a script by Barbara Henderson, author of Fir for Luck and Punch. It’s so exciting when words on the page come to life on the stage, especially when the actors are children, so full of enthusiasm and joy.
From Inverness to Edinburgh North. A group of Guides listened to the story, watched the slides and had a great laugh as they acted out the parts of the story. Once again, a hugely heart-warming experience, so much joy and fun that I’m smiling as I write. Wojtek’s story belongs to everyone.
