Kelsey Players and Maurer Productions OnStage have planned a special one-weekend-only run of the musical production “A Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas Tail” at Kelsey Theatre, on the campus of Mercer County Community College Saturday and Sunday, November 26 and 27 at 1 and 4 p.m.

Audience members are encouraged to bring new, unwrapped toys for donation to Toys for Tots, a program run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve that distributes toys to children in need.

The tale begins when Christopher Robin and friends from the Hundred-Acre Wood share a story of a Christmas Eve a long time ago. Eeyore, the old gray donkey, who lives by himself in the thistle corner of the Hundred-Acre Wood, has lost his tail. All seems lost until Winnie-the-Pooh and Piglet round up all their friends organize a search party. The show features songs and themes of caring, sharing, and the importance of friends.

Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for children, students and senior citizens. Visit
