Virginia Rep On Tour’s musical performance of A.A. Milne’s classic tale, House at Pooh Corner continues to capture young audiences. Set in the magical Hundred Acre Wood in England, Christopher Robin’s adventures with Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Owl, and Tigger delight even today. From discovering what to feed Tigger (no haycorns, no honey, no thistles) to playing Poohsticks over the bridge, the friends are bound only by their childhood imaginations. In the end, Christopher Robin tells Pooh, “Pooh, promise me you won’t forget about me, ever. Not even when I’m a hundred.” “How old shall I be then?” asks Pooh. “Ninety-nine.” Pooh replies with, “I promise.” Indeed, a child and his bear will always be playing.

Anne of Green Gables, Lucy Maud Montgomery’s timeless tale about a young orphan from Nova Scotia, has captured the hearts of young and old for more than a century. In ArtsPower’s musical, Anne Shirley is a young orphan who is determined to find a family to call her own. The spunky Anne arrives in the Nova Scotia town of Avonlea and discovers Matthew Cuthbert, whom she convinces to be her “kindred spirit.” Anne sets out to win the hearts of Matthew's skeptical sister and of the people of Avonlea.
