Roar, a family musical, tells the story of Sarah the Bear, who like many bears before her has been forced by humans to perform as a dancing bear. But Sarah has an impossible dream. She longs to break free from the system of oppression and establish herself as an equal to the humans as the world's first dancing and singing bear. The problem is that everywhere Sarah turns, her voice is silenced.
As a last resort, Sarah runs off to the circus to pursue her dream, discovering too late that the circus is run by a family of evil clowns. The clowns imprison Sarah and force her to continue performing for their show as a dancing bear.
Sarah continues to pursue her impossible dream, and eventually her dream grows bigger as she inspires other captive bears to raise their voices until they are heard. United, the power of their collective voice triumphs over the oppression they have endured.
