Everyone’s favourite bear heads to Peoples Theatre this Youth Month

Disney’s Winnie the Pooh

Peoples Theatre

11 June – 28 July 2024



There is no better way to celebrate Youth Month than by heading to Peoples Theatre for their second magical musical of 2024. Disney’s Winnie The Pooh will be on stage at Peoples Theatre from 11 June – 28 July 2024.


Who is stout and round and yellow and furry and will do anything to get his fat big paws into a delicious pot of honey?

Who has two names just in case he loses one? Winnie the Pooh!


Winnie the Pooh! by A.A. Milne needs no introduction and the large adventures in Disney’s Winnie the Pooh Kids musical about Pooh and his friends who inhabit the wondrous Hundred Acre Wood is no different. 


In this captivating tale, Pooh, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Owl, Kanga, Roo, and not forgetting Eeyore are concerned entirely with the things that children are most interested in…friends, food, birthdays, tree houses and grand expeditions.


Pooh and Christopher’s playmates are a diverse bunch of stuffed animal friends that hold human characteristics like; shyness, being adventurous, companionship and inquisitiveness, that kids and audiences of all ages will draw great lessons from.


“There are no better stories for sharing, reading aloud or for finding one’s way back to the essence of childhood”, says Director Jill Girard. 


Jill continues; “Come along to the Peoples Theatre for this fantastic musical that seeks to remind us all about the simple joys of that childlike abandon that will find you “doing nothing…or at least nothing that has to do with anything.”


Together with innovative direction, creative audience participation, a spectacular set, great costumes, top professional actors and the magic of music, this rendition of Disney’s Winnie the Pooh is set to be a sure winner and is ideal for young and old alike!!


Disney’s Winnie The Pooh is the perfect outing for your kiddies to enjoy this Youth Month in June. Ignite young imaginations and instil valuable teachings through this #TheatreInEducation show.
