Children will find Moravian College "bearly lovable" on October 17

"Bearly Lovable: Teddy Bear Bonanza," a program for children and families performed by Dave Fry and Barbara Pearson, will be held on Saturday, October 17, at 3:00 p.m., in Moravian College’s Foy Concert Hall, Main and Church streets, Bethlehem.

Children are invited to bring their favorite teddy bear to the performance. Dave Fry will play and sing old and new favorites while Barbara Pearson will involve children in playing games, singing, clapping, and dancing. Dorney Park’s Berenstain Bears will make an appearance and welcome children to the show.

Dave Fry has been entertaining Lehigh Valley audiences for more than 20 years. He tells stories, sings and performs with his banjo, guitar and mandolin. Fry has entertained a generation of children with his wit and repertoire of folk, rock, swing, traditional and bluegrass numbers.

Barbara Pearson, another favorite among children, is a dancer and choreographer. She uses early American, ethnic, historical and contemporary dances and games to engage children in learning and fun. Pearson creates dances, shows and festivals in schools across the state. Her "Dance and Play with Barbara Pearson" has been presented at Musikest for more than a decade.

The Berenstain Bears are Dorney Park’s most popular attraction amongst its youngest guests. The characters are from the pages of the best-selling Berenstain Bears children’s book series created by Stan and Jan Berenstain.

Admission to the play-party is $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and under. Advance tickets are available at the College’s Music Department and at the door prior to the show. The program is part of the Children’s Concert Series, sponsored by Joyce Pharo through the Moravian College Music Alliance, the Donley Foundation and Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom.
