A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail @ White Plains Performing Arts Center  |  |  |

November 29|11am & 2pm|Created for children and performed by adults, this show is fun for the whole family! In A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail, a very special Friend-and-Relation tells Christopher Robin a story of a Christmas Eve very long ago (about last year) when Eeyore, the old gray donkey who lives by himself in the thistle corner of Hundred-Acre Wood, was absolutely miserable. It seems that he lost his tail and Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet got all of their friends and a search was organized. There is a great deal of fun and excitement, plus delightful songs, in the adventure that follows. Its theme, which concerns caring, sharing and the importance of cultivating friends, makes this a very special and enchanting musical. Inspired by A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh.
