The MPO Puppets Return to the Kelsey Stage!
Produced by the same creative team that brought you Youíre a Good Man, Charlie Brown, Itís a Wonderful Life and Winnie the Pooh, the Musical, once again brings the timeless characters of A.A. Milne to life in a brand new musical story. Featuring a team of local actors, the story is performed using muppet-like hand and rod puppets. Presented in the Japanese puppet style of Buraku, both the puppets and the actors operating them are visible on stage resulting in a hybrid performance between the actors and the characters they portray/operate. With this traditional technique in play, children and adults alike are sure to enjoy the adventures of Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit, Kanga, Roo, Owl, Tigger and Christopher Robin as they try to find Eeyore's tail in time for his big birthday party. These beloved characters sing and dance their way through the Hundred Acre Wood in this enchanting musical retelling of Milneís classic tales.
