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 wonderful music into a story that transports audiences right into the Hundred Acre Wood! Music and puppetry without strings make this a very special treat for family audiences. Join us as we explore how the friends around us can shine brighter than any stars in the sky.
The fun thing about taking your family to see a Carousel Theatre production is that you are surrounded by other families so you can be a bit more relaxed if your toddler decided to cheer loudly or sing along with the show. The theatre has snug seating. The show is very engaging, with so much audience involvement that it added an extra layer of fun for the whole family. At one point Tigger and Rabbit are passed throughout the audience. I thought that the puppet masters might be distracting but you really focus more on the characters. There were lots of new songs to fall in love with.
