The Pyramid Players are proud to present a fun-filled musical featuring that silly old bear with Winnie-The-Pooh this fall at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 N. Michigan Rd. This fun show opens Oct. 11 for kids of all ages.

A.A. Milne’s charming Winnie-The-Pooh has been loved for generations. This bear of very little brain has many adventures with his friends Rabbit, Piglet, Tigger and Eeyore, and they all come to the stage in this one-hour musical tale. Baths, birthdays and busted balloons together with missing tails and mistaken identity create an entertaining and enchanting story that delights all ages.

Darrin Murrell stars as the title character, with Gracia Gillund as Rabbit, Jaddy Ciucci as Piglet and Roo, Ben Asaykwee as Tigger and Paige Scott as Eeyore and Kanga. The production is directed by Jeff Stockberger and choreographed by Deb Wims.

Winnie-the-Pooh concludes the 2013 Live Theatre for Kids series at Beef & Boards, and is on stage through Nov. 9. Pyramid Players productions are one hour in length and presented without intermission. Performances are for all ages, but offered particularly for children in preschool through sixth grade. Children have the opportunity to meet the cast after each show for pictures and autographs.

Performances take place at 10 a.m. on Fridays and 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturdays. All tickets are $15.50 and include a snack. For reservations, contact the box office at 872-9664. For more information or show schedule, visit www.beefandboards.com.
