The Velveteen Rabbit

By Adapted by Phil Grecian

Directed by Roseann Sheridan

Join us for this delightful adaptation of one of the most beloved books of all time. The shy Velveteen Rabbit becomes a young boy’s favorite stuffed animal and dreams of becoming a real bunny. With the help of the other toys in the nursery
and the magic Toy Fairy, the rabbit learns the true meaning of love, friendship and being “real”. A treasured story filled with humor and heart.
