Musical Theatre of Anthem (MTA) announces their upcoming production of Disney’s Winnie the Pooh KIDS, a delightful show based on the beloved characters of A.A. Milne and the 2011 Disney animated feature film. Featuring favorite songs from the film as well as new hits by the Academy Award-winning Robert and Kristen Lopez (Frozen), this honey-filled delight is as sweet as it is fun.
Welcome to the Hundred Acre Wood, where Winnie the Pooh is once again in search of honey. Along the way, he meets his pals Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit, and Owl but soon discovers that Christopher Robin has been captured by the mysterious Backson! As they prepare for a rescue operation, the animals learn about teamwork, friendship, and of course…sharing snacks. Filled with all their favorite characters, Disney’s Winnie The Pooh KIDS is a favorite for children to perform.
The talented cast, comprised of award winners and nominees ages 6-10, presents the show February 23-26 in Anthem. The award-winning production staff includes Co-Director/Co-Choreographer Sarah Brayer, Co-Director/Co-Choreographer Jessica Kishbaugh and Vocal Director Karen Blanzy.
