The Stockton Performing Arts Center and The Greater Ocean City Theatre will present the Stockton Playhouse production of “Winnie the Pooh” 10:30 a.m. Monday, July 8 at the Ocean City Music Pier, Moorlyn Terrace and the boardwalk; 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, July 10 at the Cape May Convention Center in Cape May; and 10:30 a.m. Thursday, July 11 at the Moorlyn Family Theatre, Moorlyn Terrace and the boardwalk, Ocean City.

Directed By John Anker Bow, the children’s musical tells the story of Winnie the Pooh – 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."

Pooh finds himself involved in all sorts of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as the gloomy Eeyore, the soft-spoken Piglet and the wise but fussy Rabbit and other characters. Pooh's intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey and condensed milk keeps getting him into trouble.

The Greater Ocean City Theatre Company operates as a Summer Stock/Regional Non-Equity Company, producing three to five professional musicals a year. It works in collaboration with the Ocean City Pops Orchestra to present Broadway-style shows locally.

Tickets for “Winnie the Pooh” are $10 and can be ordered at Cape May Convention Hall, online at, or by calling 855-708-9699.

The presentation is a joint project sponsored by the Stockton Performing Arts Center and the Atlantic County branch of the American Association of University Women. It is made possible in part by funds from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Department of State and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Guests can join Winnie the Pooh and his friends for a special character lunch after the July 8 at The Flanders Hotel. For information or reservations call 609-399-1000.
