Pooh's intentions are always the best, but his passion for honey and condensed milk keeps getting him into trouble. When friend Piglet gets roped into Kanga's household and Kanga starts bathing him (with soap!) and forcing down spoonfuls of Strengthening Medicine, Pooh wants to fly to the rescue, but he's had so many snacks he gets stuck in the door. Directed by Pat Price. To purchase tickets visit http://www.catsplayhouse.com/. C.A.T.S. Playhouse, 2257 34th Street; 7:30 p.m.
