The Velveteen
Rabbit

Adapted from the book by Margery Williams

The Velveteen Rabbit is an enchanting tale of the relationship between a child and his toy rabbit. To others he’s just an old toy, but to the boy the rabbit is real – and so the scene is set for a story of great emotional power.

A wise horse, some bossy bull dozers, a flying fairy and a toy box full of crazy colourful toys makes The Velveteen Rabbit a magical puppetry experience.

Anybody who has had a favourite toy will be enchanted by the beloved classic.
