The Pyramid Players present a musical featuring that silly old bear with “Winnie-The-Pooh” this fall at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Road. This show opens Oct. 11 for children of all ages.
A.A. Milne’s Winnie-The-Pooh has been loved for generations. This bear of very little brain has many adventures with his friends Rabbit, Piglet, Tigger, and Eeyore, and they all come to the stage in this one-hour musical tale. Baths, birthdays, and busted balloons together with missing tails and mistaken identity create a story that delights all ages.
Darrin Murrell stars as the title character, with Gracia Gillund as Rabbit, Jaddy Ciucci as Piglet and Roo, Ben Asaykwee as Tigger, and Paige Scott as Eeyore and Kanga. The production is directed by Jeff Stockberger and choreographed by Deb Wims.
“Winnie-the-Pooh” concludes the 2013 Live Theatre for Kids series at Beef & Boards, and is on stage through Nov. 9. Pyramid Players productions are one hour in length and presented without intermission. Performances are for all ages, but offered particularly for children in preschool through sixth grade. Children have the opportunity to meet the cast after each show for photos and autographs.
