Christopher Robin has decided to run away with his friends Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger and the rest. Probably they'll go to the North Pole or to the South Pole. For there is a dark, mysterious threat that he's to be sent away to Education. Nobody knows exactly what or where that is, and if he's sent to such a distant place, what can his friends possibly do without him? So it's generally agreed that they'll run away. As the situation becomes clearer, Christopher Robin isn't quite so sure that running away is the answer.

- "The House at Pooh Corner was one of the most beautiful productions we have mounted. Children loved the characters and they truly came alive onstage."
- Review by Connie McCrummen, Scotland High School, Laurinburg, NC
- "An excellent play of good length that is perfect for a group aged 10-14. The size of parts is good as well, as every cast member has plenty to do."

- "Our children and youth ensemble thoroughly enjoyed performing this show. The language is simple and very true to the classic stories ... accessible to children and delightful for parents!"
- Review by Katie Simons, Corinth Theatre Arts, Corinth, Miss.
- "I first directed this show in the early 1970s as a high-school drama class project. It was wonderfully received. Now retired and working with a summer youth theatre, I recalled it and did it again. The beautiful simplicity of the set and the ability of children to identify with the show's basic theme make this a very rewarding play."
- Review by J. LaRayne Watts, Willapa Players, Raymond, Wash.
- "This is such a delightful playÑfull of wit and humor. And underneath it all, lessons about friendship, loyalty and responsibility."
- Review by Kathy Keleher, St. Joan of Arc Parish School, Nashotah, Wis.
Hints, Tips, and Tricks
- "Don't get hung up on making your costumes look like the Disney version of the characters. Be creative and have fun. "
- Tip by Dawn Martin, Central High School, La Crosse, Wis.
- "Because the story takes place in the Hundred Acre Woods, a place in Christopher Robin's imagination, scenery can be very creative. We chose to create the world of the the play out of simple children's toys."
- Tip by Katie Simons, Corinth Theatre Arts, Corinth, Miss.
- "Keep the set simple with all action focused on the Sitting Stones in the center of the stage. It helps to cast an acrobatic Tigger!!"
