The Hundred Acre Wood, honey pots, and his best friends Disney's star show "Winnie the Pooh's Birthday Party" is being staged at Beijing's Century Theatre this week.
Disney's original superstar Mickey Mouse and his girlfriend Minnie started the party as guests. They also offered encouragement to the kids who will be starting their new semester next week.
Winnie the Pooh's friends Rabbit, Eyore, and Piglet were there, too. They all wanted to get a big surprise ready for their best friend's birthday party.
The famous cuddly bear is regarded as one of the most loveable, honest, and friendly cartoon characters. In the show, he gives good advice to the youngsters, such as eating healthy food, like honey, and doing exercises everyday.
The wholesome information the performance conveys impresses not only the children, but also their parents.
"I love Piglet, who do you like?"
"I love Piglet too!"
"Besides Winnie the Pooh, Eyore is my favorite too. The lovely donkey. And you?"
"When the show was debuted in China back in 2006, my husband took my daughter to see it. And when we visited the Disney World in Japan, we bought a heap of Winnie the Pooh toys. Both of us are super fans of Winnie the Pooh."
Compared to its first China tour three years ago, this year's production takes advantage of new technology. The latest 3-D devices present a vivid scene and makes the audience feel that they are taking part in the adventure along with the costumed characters. The sponsor says the whole construction is imported directly from their European and American tour.
Frances Hsu said, "Our key point of the project is the stage production. We can change the stage background 100 times within the one-and-a-half hour show, which is the most prominent technology in the world. To the young audience, they see the stage version is visually the same and even better than animation. And the adult audience would enjoy the 3-D effects too."
The party will last until Sunday. A total of eight performances will be presented in the afternoon and evening.
