“Winnie the Pooh” is stumbling and bumbling into Davenport Junior Theater this weekend — and all shows are free admission.

Davenport Junior Theater Presenting 'Winnie The Pooh' For Free This WeekendThe performances (at Nighswander Theatre, 2822 Eastern Ave.), will be Saturday Oct. 23 at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., and Sunday Oct. 24 at 3 p.m. Admission is free for everyone, first come, first served.

Based on the novel published in 1926 by A.A. Milne, “Winnie the Pooh” tells the story of a lovable bear and his misadventures when his heart, and tummy, get too focused on honey. Mayhem ensues when two new animals arrive at the forest; Kanga and Roo. Piglet gets a bath, Pooh gets stuck in Rabbit’s door, and Eeyore’s plans to have a good day are dashed.

Founded in 1951, Davenport Junior Theatre is the nation’s second-oldest children’s theatre. Classes and camps are offered year-round in theatre and dance for students ages three to eighteen. Classes are as varied as acting, improvisation, musical theatre, and theatrical design.
