National Children’s Theatre presents Winnie the Pooh Kids
Welcome to National Children’s Theatre, where you will meet Christopher Robin and his best friends, Winnie the Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl (and of course Tigger too!) in a beautifully-crafted musical stage adaptation.
Winnie the Pooh has been enjoyed by millions of readers and viewers ever since British author A.A. Milne first chronicled the adventures of Christopher Robin and his friends in 1926. The books, featuring illustrations by English illustrator E.H. Shephard, have sold over 50 million copies worldwide.
In this adventure Winnie the Pooh and his pals, Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit and Owl, have their happiness disturbed when they discover that Christopher Robin has been captured by the mysterious Backson! As they prepare a rescue operation, the animals learn about friendship, teamwork, and, of course… sharing snacks.
They are sure their creation, the Backson trap will succeed, but by some strange quirk of fate, they all land up in the trap themselves, and have to work together to find a way out. In the end, of course, Christopher Robin shows up and solves the problem of the Backson.
Moira Katz, CEO of National Children’s Theatre says that this story is the perfect introduction to live theatre for audience members of all ages. “We look forward to welcoming you and your family to one what I know will be a magical experience that will remain with children long after the last curtain call. I am thrilled to be entrusted to create a new NCT classic for the stage, for new audiences as they join our adventure into the Hundred Acre Wood.”
Under the direction of Ivor Jones we are gathering an outstanding professional cast and in addition will be welcoming our workshop students as the busy bees in the Hundred Acre Wood.
