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.
The Seven Narrators — Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet — introduce us to the Hundred Acre Wood and help tell our story. These roles are perfect for your strong actors who can speak clearly and make good eye contact with the audience.
Winnie The Pooh — Winnie the Pooh is a bear with very little brain. His good heart and love of honey will capture your audience's hearts as he helps his friends find Christopher Robin. Seeking a performer who is a strong singer, as Pooh has several solo lines.
Pooh's Tummy — Pooh's Tummy is the endearing — but very hungry — part of Pooh!
Tigger — Tigger is a tiger and a bundle of energy. He is fiercely loyal, never stops bouncing and is always up for an adventure. Cast a student who can bring a big personality and a lot of excitement to the role. While a good singer will have a fun time with Tigger's song, it is most important that the personality of this character comes through.
Piglet — 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. Cast a performer who can portray the timid side of Piglet while projecting his or her voice — and personality — to the audience. Piglet's solo lines are perfect for a singer with a sweet voice.
Rabbit — Rabbit is a worrisome rabbit who means the best for his friends but is not always sure how to help. The actor playing this role should be able to find variety in the ways to portray Rabbit's nervousness.
Owl — 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.
Kanga — Kanga is a gentle kangaroo and mother to Roo. She is good-natured and always ready to take care of the other animals.
Roo — 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 — 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. Eeyore's lines are a treat for the audience, and can lead to a case of the giggles.
Bees — The Bees are a flashy, energetic group who ultimately help Pooh get his honey. They pop in and out through the story and can be a ton of fun for the performers.
Christopher Robin — Christopher Robin is a kind boy who plays with his animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood and leads by example. While his disappearance creates the scare of the Backson, his return sets everything right again.
Word Chorus — The Word Chorus sings «Halfway Down» and helps all of the animals out of the Backson pit. This group is great for your strong choral singers. This ensemble sings in almost every song and is critical to the storytelling.
Animal Chorus — The Animal Chorus is the ensemble of animals in the Hundred Acre Wood, including Squirrels, Frogs, Beetles, Gophers, Chipmunks, Birds, Raccoons and any other animals you want to add! This ensemble sings in almost every song and is critical to the storytelling.
