Synopsis

Winnie-the-Pooh is Christopher Robin’s fat little “bear of very little brain,” who would like to drift peacefully through life, humming tunes and stopping frequently to eat “a little something.” Instead, he finds himself involved in all sorts of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as the dismal Eeyore, Piglet, and Rabbit (with his countless relations). Pooh’s intentions are always the best but his passion for honey and condensed milk keeps getting him into trouble. When friend Piglet gets roped into Kanga’s household, and Kanga starts bathing him (with soap!) and forcing down spoonfuls of Strengthening Medicine, Pooh wants to fly to the rescue, but he’s had so many snacks he gets stuck in the door.

Dramatized from the stories of A.A. Milne by Kristin Sergel

Historian’s Corner

The sixth annual Theater For Young People production “Winnie the Pooh” ran for three days including school shows. The production was a joint venture with McDonald’s Restaurants and the Community Players. Box Office Chairman Tony Holloway reported that more than 670 students had to be turned away due to sell-outs of the school shows. The production also made a profit of $562.09 by selling activity booklets. The children’s show was a financial success.
