Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation has finally made its Australian debut after critically acclaimed runs in New York, London and Chicago.
Created by acclaimed Australian-American creative Jonathan Rockefeller, Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Stage Adaptation comes to WA with shows in Mandurah, Bunbury and Subiaco following performances on the east coast and features a cast of Australian and New Zealand artists.
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) and “A whimsical delight with brilliant puppetry” (Entertainment Weekly). The London premiere in March 2022 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” says Jonathan Rockefeller.
Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical 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.
