Winnie the Pooh Comes to Life Onstage as a Singing, Life-Size Puppet

The beloved children’s book takes on a fresh form with a musical for all ages.

Winnie the Pooh must gather all his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood for his most harrowing journey yet — a musical theater act coming to town this year.

Step into the buzzing world of the Hundred Acre Wood and meet Winnie and his friends as life-size puppets. The Sherman Brothers’ classic Grammy Award-winning musical (with further songs by A.A. Milne) provides the backdrop to a tale filled with the bumbling charm and paradoxical wisdom of the beloved bear.
