Everyone's favorite characters from the Hundred Acre Wood will be coming to life on the stage at California State University, Stanislaus with performances of “House at Pooh Corner.”
Christopher Robin has decided to run away with his friends Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger and the rest. Probably they'll go to the North Pole or to the South Pole. For there is a dark, mysterious threat that he's to be sent away to Education. Nobody knows exactly what or where that is, and if he's sent to such a distant place, what can his friends possibly do without him? So it's generally agreed that they'll run away. As the situation becomes clearer, Christopher Robin isn't quite so sure that running away is the answer.
The story was adapted for the stage by Bettye Knapp and is being directed by Kitsy Olson.
Shows are set for 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. All shows will be on the Mainstage Theatre.
Tickets are $5 general admission and $3 for seniors, faculty, staff and children under 12 years. Tickets can be purchased at the box office prior to the show, over the phone at 667-3166 or online at www.csustan.edu/event/theatre/house-pooh-corner.
