Will the power of a child’s love be enough to make the Velveteen Rabbit’s wish come true?

At first the Velveteen Rabbit seems like an old-fashioned toy to Bee, who prefers more high-tech birthday presents. Soon, though, Bee and “Bunny” become inseparable friends. Together they invent worlds in the house and in the garden, and when Bee gets sick, the Velveteen Rabbit never leaves Bee’s side. Guided by the wise Toy Horse and the Magic Fairy, the Velveteen Rabbit discovers how toys become real through the power of a child’s love. This vibrant new stage adaptation of the classic story features original music and dance.
