JOPLIN, Mo – The children’s play A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail, book, music & lyrics by Dr. James W. Rodgers, will be presented at 2:30 p.m. Dec. 3 - 4 in the Taylor Performing Arts Center at Missouri Southern State University.
Lyndall Burrow directs this Christmas-themed children’s theatre production.
Loveable “old gray donkey” Eeyore has once again lost his tail just before Christmas and it is up to Pooh, Piglet and the rest of the gang to scour the Hundred-Acre Wood to find the tail before the big Christmas Eve party.
Come join us as we take you on a fun-filled adventure that you will never forget!
