In the play “The House at Pooh Corner,” presented by Durham Family Theatre, written by A.A. Milne and adapted by Betty Knapp, Pooh and Friends gather in the Hundred Acre Woods for a Mergency Meeting called by Christopher Robin. Eeyore needs a house before the blizzard arrives. Piglet is afraid of nearly everything and Tigger bounces into the Woods with Unexpected Consequences! All the while, Christopher Robin, Pooh and Friends sing the most lively and beautiful songs with music put to A.A. Milne’s hums by H. Fraser-Simson.

Presented on March 9, 10, 16, 17 at 7:00 pm and March 10 & 17 at 1:00 pm at Whitford Hall in Duke Memorial United Methodist Church (504 W Chapel Hill Street), tickets are available on Durham Family Theatre's website.
