in association with

Black Bear Awareness Week



Bear Safety for the 21st Century


Tuesday September 10 & Wednesday September 11 @ 8pm

@ The Fly Me To The Moon Saloon 132 East Colorado Ave

In 2009, and 2010 BEAR IT! an original show, was played to SOLD OUT Telluride audiences... and its BACK for 2013! 


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.  They approached Telluride Theatre to write a play for the adult community, to educate and enlighten and through pure entertainment.  


Karen Guglielmone, the Public Works manager for the Town of Telluride says, “We know that 2 bears are out in town and they are behaving badly – a very large black colored bear and a less large (but large nonetheless) cinnamon colored bear.  I understand that our citizens are confronting them to chase them out of town.  I am concerned that someone will end up getting injured.  Let’s all be smart! Let’s all be safe!...  And at Bear It!  Let’s all have some fun, too!”


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 (a hat will be passed).
