Kaleidoscope Premieres New Play Based on Winnie the Pooh Stories
The world's most beloved bear and his friends come to life in the latest theatrical offering from Victoria's Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People: The House at Pooh Corner.
In this latest production by Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People, Winnie the Pooh and his friends are joined by their beloved Christopher Robin, embarking on a string of engaging adventures in The House at Pooh Corner. The charm of the friendships shared in this beautiful stage adaptation of A.A. Milne's book blends enchanting puppetry and music into a story that transports audiences right into the Hundred Acre Wood.
Drawing on short stories from A.A. Milne's 1928 collection of the same name, The House at Pooh Corner invites audiences into the world of the famous bear. Kaleidoscope's stage adaptation features Hailey Fowler in her Kaleidoscope debut with Mark Hellman, Elliott Loran, David Radford, and Kirsten Van Ritzen under the direction of Roderick Glanville with Puppet Design by Pamela Stringer, Set Design by Barbara Clerihue, Costume design by Hannah Beth Stenberg, Lighting Design by Emma Dickerson, Projection Design by Jason King, original music by Alexander Brendan Ferguson, and Stage Management by Lois Dawson.
The House at Pooh Corner plays February 21-23 at the McPherson Playhouse with School Matinee performances on February 21. Tickets start at $14.00 for children and are available through the McPherson Box Office (rmts.bc.ca / 250.386.6121)
