ATMTC Offers An On-Stage Adventure In The Hundred Acre Wood
Adventure Theatre MTC (ATMTC), recipient of 62 Helen Hayes Nominations, brings to the stage Winnie the Pooh, directed by Helen Hayes Nominated Shirley Serotsky (ATMTC's The Jungle Book) former Interim Artistic Director for Theatre J. Based on the classic by A. A. Milne, this delightful tale of the Hundred Acre Wood is recommended for all ages. Tickets are $20 each and can be purchased online at www.adventuretheatre-mtc.org or by calling 301.634.2270.
Winnie the Pooh would spend every day of life humming tunes and stopping frequently to eat "a little something." But today, Pooh and Piglet have to find the Heffalump, watch Rabbit scheme to rid the forest of Kanga's dreaded bathtub, and help Eeyore search for his tail. Pooh's intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey and condensed milk keeps getting him into trouble.
Shirley Serotsky says of the project, "I'm thrilled to be working with an incredibly talented and delightful group of artists to tell this classic story. We will celebrate the power of the imagination to create new worlds and foster friendships. While much will be recognizable as the Pooh we know and love, I think this production will also resonate in new and charming ways with audiences."
Michael J. Bobbitt, Artistic Director of Adventure Theatre MTC, says, "Shirley Serotsky did such an amazing job with The Jungle Book in 2014, and we are thrilled she is going to bring her creativity back to our stage for this classic tale of a community coming together to solve problems with humor and kindness, which are two things the world always craves."
Leon Seemann adds, "The world should truly be how Winnie the Pooh sees it, enjoy what you have and be a good friend. There is no better lessons for kids."
Winnie the Pooh is recommended for all ages. Tickets are $20 each with group and field trip rates available. The press performance will be Sunday, March 31, 2019 at 2pm. All performances will take place at Adventure Theatre MTC, 7300 MacArthur Blvd, Glen Echo, MD, 20812 in the historic Glen Echo Park.
