Need a hit of nostalgia? Look no further. Disney’s smash hit Winnie The Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation is making its way Down Under for its Australian debut with a national tour on the horizon – oh honey!
After critically acclaimed runs in New York, London, and Chicago, Winnie The Pooh Musical will wow crowds in Brisbane before making its way across the nation with Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart and Melbourne on the cards, as well as eight other Australian cities and towns.
The musical is based on none other than the iconic Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robinson and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, and Owl too. Jonathan Rockerfeller is the creative behind the musical adaptation which brings the characters to life featuring stunning life-size puppetry fit for audiences of all ages.
Jonathan Rockerfeller says, “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.”
Produced by Life Like Touring, in partnership with Rockefeller Productions, and in association with Disney Theatrical Group, Winnie the Pooh: The New Stage Adaptation was nominated for Drama Desk Awards and OBA awards for Best Puppetry and Best Family Show – so it’s sure to be a sweet affair!
