The three-day engagement at the Irving Arts Center, 3333 N. MacArthur Blvd., will be the first on a national 39-date cross-country tour Sept.16-18, following a tech run at the facility. North Texas families of all ages will be among the very first audiences to enjoy the celebrated show featuring Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl (and Tigger too).
"The music, the spectacular life-size puppets, and the charming performances are the perfect way to introduce (or re-introduce) audiences to live theatre, and this is a must-see show for Winnie the Pooh fans of all ages. We are excited to bring the Hundred Acre Wood across America so that audiences of all ages can join us for this heartwarming production," said Director Jonathan Rockefeller.
In the new story from the Hundred Acre Wood, this fresh stage adaptation is told with impressive life-size puppetry, telling exciting new stories featuring characters that have played iconic roles in the lives of children for generations. Accompanying the magical, modern narrative is an original score from Nate Edmondson, which features some of the songs written for the animated feature from The Sherman Brothers, including “Winnie the Pooh,” “The Blustery Day,” “The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers,” “Whoop-De-Dooper Bounce,” and A.A. Milne's “The More It Snows.”
