Hundred Acre Woods is coming to a city near you. Disney's Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation launches a nationwide tour September 16 in Irving, Texas, and will wrap up May 7, 2023, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Inspired by the books by A. A. Milne and their Disney animated adaptations, the family-friendly show brings together Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl (and Tigger, too!).
The brand-new story is told with life-sized puppetry, accompanied by an original score from Nate Edmondson, which features some of the songs written for the animated feature by The Sherman Brothers, including "Winnie the Pooh," "The Blustery Day," "The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers," "Whoop-De-Dooper Bounce," and Milne's "The More It Snows."
The show, created and directed by Jonathan Rockefeller of Rockefeller Productions, premiered Off-Broadway in October 2021. It played a 3-month limited engagement at Theatre Row, followed by a return summer engagement.
