The Story

Have you ever wondered what toys do at night while you're fast asleep? Do you remember your favorite toys from childhood? Didn't you believe that they were real? The story of "The Velveteen Rabbit" brings us back to those innocent days of wonder and magic. This special musical journey follows one little girl and her beloved stuffed rabbit as they discover the true meaning of love and what it is to be real.

The Workshop

In addition to the musical, the audience receives a special treat -- an interactive arts workshops prior to the performance. Here the audience learns about the original book and how we turned it into a musical. We discuss the themes of the show and how the arts bring literature to life. Then the kids and their families have an opportunity to make their own rabbit and a set of bunny ears to wear during the show. And of course they take their masterpieces home with them! Now when they watch the show, they are familiar with the art forms represented in the production.
