“Pooh’s Christmas Miracle in the Hundred Acre Wood” is an original staged radio play by local playwright, Scott F. Mason.  A few days before Christmas, a group of thespians meet at a radio station to voice this sequel to “A House at Pooh Corner.”  The story (narrated by Kanga and Roo) is set in 1965 and it has been decades since Christopher Robin said “goodbye” to his fluffy friends.  The inspirational plush toys now sit in the window of the adult real life Christopher Robin Milne’s bookstore. They have not had an adventure since the 1920s, until on Christmas Eve morning when a shy young girl, Emalina, spies Pooh and friends in the window. She tells them she is “doing nothing” and the journey begins. The girl meets them in the legendary enchanted place and tells them that St. Nick will not be visiting her home at Christmas. Pooh and company have no understanding of the holiday’s meaning until they are enlightened by a legendary story from Eeyore. Pooh and Eeyore, joined by Owl, Rabbit, Tigger, and Piglet, all set out to bring their new friend a Christmas miracle and embrace the joys of friendship. Meanwhile, as the voice actors present Pooh’s newest adventure, they share thoughts about the almost tragic history of the A.A. Milne’s legacy; and we learn about their own trials and tribulations about the busy holiday season, from its stressful expectations, to the true meaning and spirit of Christmas. The show is suitable for ages 10 and up.
