‘Silly old bear’: Winnie-the-Pooh opens at the Old Log Theatre 
The Old Log Theatre presents Excelsior Entertainments production of a charming musical version of A.A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh. 
Pooh’s time-tested wisdom is as relevant today as it was nearly a century ago, when the beloved teddy bear first appeared in print. Christopher Robin's fat little "bear of very little brain" who would like to drift peacefully through life, humming tunes and stopping frequently to eat "a little something", finds himself involved in all sorts of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as the Eeyore, Piglet and Rabbit, with his countless relations.  Winnie-the-Pooh is a wonderful children’s play for kids of all ages.

Reception at 6pm; Program at 7pm

An essential part of enacting justice is the acknowledgment of historic abuses. The power of bearing witness to trauma, to omitted histories, and to personal testimony has been demonstrated perennially at Penumbra Theatre. Join us for a conversation exploring the ways in which artists act as conduits for healing, awareness raising, and action around issues of race and social justice.

Penumbra’s Let’s Talk Series creates space for compassionate and challenging conversations around issues of social justice, equity, and the arts. Hosted by Sarah Bellamy, the event begins at 6:00pm with refreshments and light bites, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion.

WORLD PREMIERE

The event of the season! Take a trip to the downstairs residence at Pemberley - the house a-twitter with the bustle of servants and the arrival of the Bennet clan as seen in last season’s hit, Miss Bennet.

Add on your tickets to this very special premiere, and spend the holidays wrapped in Edwardian charm.

Every family has its secrets. Cornelius Aloysius Gaines and his daughters are no exception.
Inspired by Euripides’ The Bacchae and set in Reconstruction era New Orleans, playwright Josh Cragun has populated the Crescent City with with a complex collection of ambitious, passionate people.
