Lost Nation Theater presents Winnie-the-Pooh Youth Theater

Lost Nation Theater’s “Back to the 100-Acre Wood: Winnie-the-Pooh Revue,” an original dance-theater show, storms the stage for two performances only: Friday, Feb. 25, at 6 p.m., and Saturday, Feb. 26 at 11 a.m.

Join Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Christopher Robin, Rabbit, Roo, and the many other A.A. Milne characters in Lost Nation’s “by kids for kids” youth theater. This show revisits the adventures of the 100-Acre Wood through athletic adagio, contemporary dance, hip-hop, song, story, and inventive design.

The show features 18 rising stars, ages 6 through 20, performing on-stage and behind the scenes to create imaginative, fun, and entertaining dance-theater. The brainchild of quadruple talent Taryn Noelle and founding artistic director and resident playwright Kim Allen Bent, “Back to the 100-Acre Wood: Winnie the Pooh Revue” also features original songs.

“As we were brainstorming ideas for this year’s camp, I was struck by stories that felt timeless yet timely,” Noelle said. “I realized the beloved characters in A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh series feel like the very dearest of friends. The kind you only need think of and suddenly they appear right there in your mind and in your heart. Once we remembered Pooh… that was it!”

The ensemble of Finn Bearsch, Lydia Bearsch, Alexander Clayton, Ariabella Clayton, Isabella Estrada, Everett Gill, Elena Guadagno, Savannah Light, Elizabeth McCusker, Emma McCusker, Erik Mohlman, Julia Perez, Sophia Perez, Maggie Redmond, Mia Roy, Joy Santana, and Emanuel Van Fleet, spot-lit by technician Jason Perez, create the world and inhabitants of the Wood to retell these terrific tales, “revue-style.”

To keep everyone safe, proper mask-wearing, proof of full vaccination, and adherence to other COVID safety protocols are required for in-person seating.
