Celebrate the season with Valley Youth Theatre’s

14th anniversary production of the holiday musical

A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail

December 4 through 23, 2009 

(Phoenix) – Valley Youth Theatre’s 14th anniversary production brings everyone’s best pals – Pooh, Piglet, Christopher Robin, Tigger, and of course, Eeyore – together LIVE on stage just in time for the holidays, December 4 through 23, 2009.  

This production is the classic tale of friendship, thoughtfulness, and holiday spirit.  Eeyore is gloomy on Christmas Eve since his “very handsome tail” is missing. Pooh, Piglet, Rabbit and Tigger organize the whole Hundred Acre Wood gang into a search. Will the friends find the tail in time for the Christmas Eve party? Based on the beloved stories by A.A. Milne, with music and lyrics by James W. Rodgers, this production is sure to be a holiday hit with all ages. 

 Directed by VYT’s education and outreach director, Jessica Graeber, and based on Bobb Cooper’s original award-winning direction, performance times are as follows: Fridays (December 4, 11, 18) at 7:30pm; Saturdays (December 5, 12, 19)  at 11:00am and 1:30pm; Sundays (December 6, 13, 20) at 12:30pm and 3:00pm; Monday, December 21, Tuesday, December 22, and Wednesday, December 23 at 10:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.   Tickets are $20 per person, adults and children two and up, and can be ordered through Valley Youth Theatre’s box office at 602-253-8188, ext. 2.
