Pooh Bear and all of his friends from the classic children’s books and animated film band together to rescue their friend, Christopher Robin!
Directed/Choreographed by Lindsay Maron with Musical Direction by Geoffrey Ko
Auditions Open to Ages 5-13
Remote AND In Person Options!
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.

Meet the Characters!
All roles in Winnie the Pooh KIDS are gender neutral. All roles are open to all performers. We are looking for diverse casts who can embody the heart and soul of each of these beloved characters. Every character is a large part of the production and will be featured throughout.
Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh is a bear with very little brain. He has good heart and a love of honey!
Tigger is a tiger and a bundle of energy. He is fiercely loyal, never stops bouncing and is always up for an adventure.
Owl is a well-educated, slightly pompous owl. He is quick to explain or lecture, even when he isn't sure of the right answer. Still, the other animals look up to Owl and come to him when Christopher Robin has gone missing.
Piglet is a shy and quiet pig. He is often afraid of his own shadow but is also incredibly smart and noble and a great problem solver.
Rabbit is a worrisome rabbit who means the best for his friends but is not always sure how to help.
Kanga is a gentle kangaroo and mother to Roo. She is good-natured and always ready to take care of the other animals.
Roo is a kangaroo and the youngest animal in the wood. He is boisterous and playful and always looks up to his friend Tigger.
Eeyore is a gloomy but loyal donkey. He can never seem to shake his bad luck and is constantly losing his tail. Despite his gloomy attitude, he always wants the best for his friends.
Introduce us to the Hundred Acre Wood and help tell our story.
The Bees are a flashy, energetic group who ultimately help Pooh get his honey.
