Seven Narrators- Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, Violet - introduce us to the Hundred Acre Wood and help tell our story. These non-singing roles are perfect for strong actors who can speak clearly and make good eye contact with the audience.
Winnie The Pooh- is a bear with very little brain. His good heart and love of honey will capture the audience's hearts as he helps his friends find Christopher Robin.
Pooh's Tummy- is the endearing - but very hungry - part of Pooh! This role can be one or more performers who are onstage, offstage or any way that fits the production. The Tummy does not have any spoken lines and may be a great role for performers new to theater.
Tigger- is a tiger and a bundle of energy. He is fiercely loyal, never stops bouncing and is always up for an adventure.
Piglet- is a shy and quiet pig. He is often afraid of his own shadow but is also incredibly smart and noble and a great problem solver. Piglet's solo lines are perfect for a singer with a sweet voice.
Rabbit- is a worrisome rabbit who means the best for his friends but is not always sure how to help. The actor playing this role should be able to find variety in the ways to portray Rabbit's nervousness.
Owl- is a well-educated, slightly pompous owl. He is quick to explain or lecture, even when he isn't sure of the right answer. Still, the other animals look up to Owl and come to him when Christopher Robin has gone missing.
Kanga- is a gentle kangaroo and mother to Roo. She is good-natured and always ready to take care of the other animals.
Roo- is a kangaroo and the youngest animal in the wood. He is boisterous and playful and always looks up to his friend Tigger. This is a great role for a student new to theater.
Eeyore- is a gloomy but loyal donkey. He can never seem to shake his bad luck and is constantly losing his tail. Despite his gloomy attitude, he always wants the best for his friends. Eeyore's lines are a treat for the audience, and can lead to a case of the giggles.
Bees- are a flashy, energetic group who ultimately help Pooh get his honey. They pop in and out through the story and can be a ton of fun for the performers.
Christopher Robin- is a kind boy who plays with his animal friends in the Hundred Acre Wood and leads by example. While his disappearance creates the scare of the Backson, his return sets everything right again. This non-singing role is a wonderful opportunity for an actor who can deliver spoken lines loudly and clearly.
Word Chorus- sings "Halfway Down" and helps all of the animals out of the Backson pit. This group is great for strong choral singers.
Animal Chorus- is the ensemble of animals in the Hundred Acre Wood, including Squirrels, Frogs, Beetles, Gophers, Chipmunks, Birds, Raccoons and any other animals we want to add! This ensemble sings in almost every song and is critical to the storytelling.
