The Bear Musical Theatre Project is a tuition-free youth theatre camp created to continue the legacy of our dear friend and talented performer Bear Nichols who we lost tragically in 2021.
During the two-week camp actors will explore music, dance, acting, improv games, and becoming part of an ensemble. Teaching artists come from Cardboard Playhouse’s alumni and company members to lead new and experienced actors through a musical from read-through to performance. Most importantly campers will have fun and make new friends. The camp ends with a fully produced performance at The Box Performance Space in downtown Albuquerque.

About Disney’s Winnie the Pooh Kids
Disney's Winnie the Pooh KIDS is a delightful show based on the beloved characters of A.A. Milne and the 2011 Disney animated feature film. Featuring favorite songs from the film, as well as new hits by the Academy Award-winning Robert and Kristen Lopez (Frozen), this honey-filled delight is as sweet as it is fun.
Welcome to the Hundred Acre Wood, where Winnie the Pooh is once again in search of honey. Along the way, he meets his pals, Tigger, Piglet, Rabbit and Owl, but soon discovers that Christopher Robin has been captured by the mysterious Backson! As they prepare for a rescue operation, the animals learn about teamwork, friendship and, of course... sharing snacks.
