Winnie the Pooh (1996)


March 22-24, 29-30, 1996


Community Players Theatre

A Theatre for Young People Production


“Winnie-the-Pooh” is Christopher Robin’s fat little “bear of very little brain” who would like to drift peacefully through life, humming tunes and stopping frequently to eat “a little something.” However, he finds himself involved in all sorts of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as the dismal Eeyore, Piglet and, Rabbit with his countless relations. Pooh’s intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey and condensed milk keeps getting him into trouble. When friend Piglet gets roped into Kanga’s household, and Kanga starts bathing him (with soap!) and forcing down spoonfuls of Strengthening Medicine, Pooh wants to fly to the rescue, but he’s had so many snacks he gets stuck in the door.

From the stories of A.A. Milne, Dramatized by Kristen Sergel

Historian’s Corner

This “Theatre For Young People” production was a revival production of “Winnie the Pooh” which had been first performed in the 1988-1989 season. Area preschools and day care centers were contacted and sold out the three day performances (in addition to the regular run) four months before the opening show. Newcomer for the production was Donna-Alena Worth.
