THEATRE AT RVCC TO PRESENT WINNIE THE POOH
The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College (RVCC) in North Branch will stage TheatreworksUSA?s production of Winnie the Pooh , Sunday, January 13, 2008, at 1 and 3:30 p.m.
The performance is part of the Theatre?s Sampler Series . The series, recommended for youngsters age four and older, features events for children and their families.
It?s a very busy day for Pooh in the Hundred Acre Wood. He has to complete his stoutness exercises, catch a Heffalump with Piglet and also search for Eeyore?s missing tail. Meanwhile, Rabbit needs Pooh?s assistance in an elaborate plan to trick Kanga and Baby Roo, and Owl dispenses some bird-brained advice. All the while, everyone?s favorite bear is hungrily searching for honey. Generations have grown up with A.A. Milne?s stories about Christopher Robin and his toy animals. Now, all the heart, wisdom and fun of the classic tales come to life as musical theatre.
Tickets cost $10 each. Subscription discounts are available.
