Prince Charming, You’re Late

Once upon a time, young Billy waited for Prince Charming’s rescue. They would live in some far-off kingdom with lots of waltzing. And princess dresses. When an enchanting man half his age and arrow-straight appeared one day, did Billy stop dreaming of happily ever after? Dream on… A true life fable, a one-man middle-age-ed cautionary tale, developed with generous support from the Emerging Artists Theatre New Work Series in NYC.

Our story

TigerBear Productions started on its journey long before 2019. Our fore“bears” include the first artists who inspired us as wee cubs, and those who shaped and shared them with us. As we grew, we wondered again and again: who could we gather to tell a story with, and who could we gather to tell it to? Print and stage and screen evolved, and so did we, yet we kept renewing our love of making stories and making them happen. Here, now, we keep telling and making them, with more inspirations in our hearts and imaginations than we can count. Join our journey.

join us in our mission to inspire, elevate and delight!

We’re grateful for all the ways you support us. That you’re reading this is one of them. If you’re interested in other ways, like sponsoring a production or more, let us know!
