Alden Spring Production Auditions for: “Winnie-the-Pooh”

Dramatized by Kristin Sergel, from the Stories of A.A. Milne

Produced with special arrangements with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY

 

Monday-Tuesday, Jan. 14 and 15, 7-9 p.m.: Open Auditions - 1/14/19: Due to inclement weather, tonight's auditions will be rescheduled to tomorrow night, Tuesday, 1/15, beginning at 6:30 p.m. 

Wednesday, Jan. 16, 7-9 p.m.: Call Backs

at The Alden

 

It’s story time for Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh, but Pooh won’t hear just any story, he wants to hear a story about himself, because “he’s that sort of bear.” Pooh’s love of honey and his friendship with Piglet take him and the rest of the forest creatures, Owl, Eeyore and Rabbit, on a journey as they try to understand their new neighbors, Kanga and Roo. There is a reason this beloved story has become a classic for all ages—the themes are universal and the characters are silly, yet charming.

Youth actors will work with The Alden’s team of theatre professionals to bring this story to life with full sets, costumes and technical elements on The Alden’s stage.

 

Rehearsals: Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, 7-9 p.m., from late January through mid-March

Performances: Saturdays and Sundays, March 9, 10, 16 and 17, 2 p.m., in The Alden
