Disney’s Winnie the Pooh the musical will be coming to the UK for the first time in Spring 2023.
Developed and directed by Jonathan Rockefeller (The Very Hungry Caterpillar Show, Paddington Gets in a Jam), Winnie the Pooh: The New Musical Adaptation is set inside the Hundred Acre Wood and follows A A Milne’s beloved characters, Christopher Robin, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl, Tigger and, of course, Winnie himself, in a new story.
Creator Jonathan Rockefeller said: “The music, the life-size puppets, and the charming performances are the perfect way to introduce (or re-introduce) audiences to live theatre, and this is a must-see show for Winnie the Pooh fans of all ages. I am thrilled to be entrusted to bring this celebrated character to the stage for new audiences as they join our adventure into the Hundred Acre Wood.”
Winnie the Pooh the musical opened at Theatre Row in New York in 2021, where it broke theatre box office records for the largest advance. A venue, dates and casting for the UK premiere are yet to be announced.
