Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation will finally make its Australian debut 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 Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide, Perth, Hobart and Melbourne – featuring an all Australian cast.
Disney’s iconic Winnie the Pooh, Christopher Robinson and their best friends Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl (oh… and don’t forget Tigger too!) have come to life in a beautifully crafted stage musical adaptation featuring stunning life-size puppetry for audiences of all ages.
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)
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.
Winnie the Pooh: The New Stage Adaptation was nominated for Drama Desk Awards and OBA awards for Best Puppetry and Best Family Show.
Produced by TEG Life Like Touring, in partnership with Rockefeller Productions, and in association with Disney Theatrical Group.
