Attention Disney fans! Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation is heading to debut in Perth after critically acclaimed runs in New York, London and Chicago. The show, created by acclaimed Australian-American creative Jonathan Rockefeller, will debut in Brisbane this July before hitting the road for a national tour including Perth in August- featuring an all Australian cast.
Everybody’s favourites, Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robinson and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl (oh… and don’t forget Tigger too!) have sprung into life as life-size puppetry immerses audiences of all ages in the 100 Acre Wood.
Inspired by the beloved books by A.A.Milne and the classic Disney featurettes, Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation has garnered rave reviews while being called “Enchanting” (Time Out) and “A whimsical delight with brilliant puppetry” (Entertainment Weekly). The London premiere this Spring smashed U.K. box office records, being deemed “a show that truly spans the generations” (WhatsOnStage).
“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. We are excited to bring the Hundred Acre Wood to Australia so that audiences of all ages can join us for this heartwarming production” says Jonathan Rockefeller.
Touring Mandurah, Bunbury and Perth throughout August, with tickets going on sale June 15th.
