This charming tale celebrates boundless imagination and the power of believing. With a dash of magic, three actors transform their playspace into a children’s nursery with a rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical toys, a kind-hearted fairy and a toy rabbit who is transformed by one little boy’s love.
“A certain magic takes over… and this production, like the Velveteen Rabbit, it comes thrillingly wonderfully alive.”– The New York Times
The Velveteen Rabbit is recommended for ages 3-8 and their grown-up companions
What to Expect: This story explores the transformative magic of love, even at life’s most difficult moments. When Boy becomes gravely ill, the doctor orders that all his toys be thrown out. Abandoned, the Rabbit is very sad, but never stops believing he and Boy will find each other again.
