Winnie-the-Pooh is Christopher Robin's fat little "bear of very little brain" who would like to drift peacefully through life, humming tunes and stopping frequently to eat "a little something." However, he finds himself involved in all sorts of frantic adventures, assisted by such friends as the dismal Eeyore, Piglet and Rabbit, with his countless relations. 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. A.A. Milne's wit and special understanding of young people make this one of the most successful plays available.
Over the past two years, Eric has found a wonderful artistic home at the Old Log. Audiences have seen him break four pianos as Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet, entertain brides and grooms as Robbie Hart in The Wedding Singer, and swindle the rich as Freddy Benson in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. During those two years at the Old Log, Eric has also produced a few concerts, stage managed a Dragon, turned microphones on and off, took some Instagram pictures, and sold some tickets. Eric is thrilled to embark on his next Old Log journey of assembling a team of wonderful collaborators and mounting a music-theater production.
When not at the Old Log, Eric spends tons of time working with Nautilus Music-Theater in St. Paul. Nautilus is dedicated to exploring the intricacies of the music-theater art form as well as developing singer-actors for success in that field. With Nautilus, Eric has also worked on the development of brand new music-theater pieces such as “TWISTED APPLES: Tales from Winesburg, Ohio.” Eric has also participated in their Wesley Balk Opera/Music-Theatre Institute as a director and a performer.
