    About Winnie-the-Pooh

Pooh, The Bear of Very Little Brain, and all his friends – Piglet, Rabbit, Eeyore, Owl, Kanga, Roo and Christopher Robin are all on hand for grand adventures. From the arrival of Roo and Kanga’s bathtub, to the search for Eeyore’s missing tail, the Heffalump hunt, and especially Eeyore’s birthday these friends see each other through thick and thin!

    The production features Greg Hall as Pooh; Kristen Trahan as Piglet, Roo, and Owl; Micah Stinson as Christopher Robin and Rabbit; and Jared Carlin as Eeyore and Kanga. Daria James is the director.

    About A.A. Milne

    A.A. Milne is known the world over for writing the timeless children’s classics about Winnie-the-Pooh. But Pooh was only a very tiny part of Milne’s oeuvre. He was an extremely accomplished and prolific playwright, novelist, and poet.

    Milne wrote over twenty-five plays including Wurzel-Flummery (1917), Belinda (1918), The Boy Comes Home (1918), Make-Believe (1918), The Camberley Triangle (1919), Mr. Pim Passes By (1919), The Red Feathers (1920), The Romantic Age (1920), The Stepmother (1920), The Truth about Blayds (1920), The Dover Road (1921), The Lucky One (1922), The Artist: a duologue (1923), Give Me Yesterday (1923) [aka Success in the UK], The Great Broxopp (1923),  Ariadne (1924), The Man in the Bowler Hat: a terribly exciting affair (1924), To Have the Honour (1924), Portrait of a Gentleman in Slippers, (1926), Success (1926), Miss Marlow at Play (1927), The Fourth Wall or The Perfect Alibi (1928), The Ivory Door (1929), Toad of Toad Hall (1929) (Adaptation of The Wind in the Willows), Michael and Mary (1930), Other People's Lives (1933) [aka They Don't Mean Any Harm], Miss Elizabeth Bennett (1936), Sarah Simple (1937), Gentleman Unknown (1938), The General Takes Off His Helmet (1939) in The Queen's Book of the Red Cross, The Ugly Duckling (1946), and Before the Flood (1951).

    Milne died in 1956.

    Parking:

    Parking at Chelsea Market is easy. There is a large parking lot behind the center. Should that be full, a pass through halfway up on the right will take you to an additional surface lot as well as street parking on Chelsea. The entrance to the parking lot can be found on the north side of the building next to the O'Rourke's Steak House.

    Though parking at Chelsea Market is easy, getting there may be a challenge with the construction involved with the Soutwest Freeway Project. MST recommends that you allow plenty of time for detours and unexpected delays, as there is no late seating once the show starts.

    Arriving early and planning on lunch or an afternoon treat at a Montrose eatery may solve the traffic blues.
