Appalachian Young People’s Theatre (AYPT)
Directed by Gordon Hensley
For nearly a century, the timeless tales of Winnie-the-Pooh and his beloved companions, Piglet, Owl, Tigger, Rabbit, and the melancholic Eeyore, have captivated hearts worldwide. Originally written by A.A. Milne as a gift for his son, Christopher Robin, these endearing characters come to life once more through the Appalachian Young People’s Theatre’s lighthearted and interactive stage production. While devised for students from kindergarten to third grade, all ages can revisit their inner child as Winnie-the-Pooh, adapted for the stage by Gordon Hensley, weaves its charming narrative. This enchanting journey into the Hundred Acre Wood celebrates the magic of childhood, reminding us why these stories have remained cherished treasures for decades.
