Western Canada Theatre is excited to present The House at Pooh Corner, AA Milne’s classic tale of friendship and love on March 4 and 11 at the Pavilion Theatre.

This delightful show will be particularly magical for children ages 3 to 8.

“The beloved stories of Christopher Robin and his best friend Winnie-the-Pooh have lived in the hearts of children, and those adults who used be, for over 90 years now.” says Director Heather Cant, “They were some of my favourite books as a child that I read again and again. I am so excited to bring a new generation of kids inside the 100 Acre Wood and, with the help of some stunning puppets, take them adventuring with Tigger, Kanga and Roo, Eeyore and Rabbit, Owl, Piglet, and of course, their old friend Pooh Bear.”

The House at Pooh Corner is a charming production that immerses young audiences directly into the story. It’s filled with beautiful puppets and brings to life all of your favourite characters from the Hundred Acre Wood. For every child and for the child in every adult, Winnie the Pooh and his friends are ready to share their adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood.

Making his debut appearance at Western Canada Theatre is budding young actor Deidrich Orton, an 11-year-old Kamloops local and former Stage One Theatre School student, as Christopher Robin. Along with Deidrich are Andrew G. Cooper, Randi Edmundson, and Stefano Giulianetti as both actors and puppeteers.

The creative team for this magical production are Randi Edmundson (Music Director), Travis Hatt (Set & Lighting Designer), Marian Truscott (Costume Designer), Shawn Kettner (Puppet Designer & Builder), Cathy Nosaty (Original Composition), Madison Henry (Stage Manager), and Erik Hagar (Design Apprentice).

The House at Pooh Corner, March 4 and 11, 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., at the Pavilion Theatre. Tickets at Kamloops Live! Box Office: www.kamloopslive.com or 250-374-5483. More information: www.wctlive.ca.
