THE VELVETEEN RABBIT
Adapted for the stage by Janet Allard

“Once you are Real you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always.” A stuffed toy rabbit’s quest to become real through the love of a child drives this adaptation of Margery Williams’ timeless tale that celebrates the power of love to transform out lives. Join a boy and his rabbit in a world of strange and wonderful magic with talking toys, wild adventures, and secret burrows, as they come to discover the true meaning of what it is to be Real.
Come join us for the timeless and magical story of The Velveteen Rabbit and stay for the talkback after the performance so we can hear how the story has touched you. Whether you are already familiar with the story or are seeing it for the first time, this is not your grandpa's Velveteen Rabbit!”

There’s a wonderful line in the poetic tale The Little Prince, “L’essentiel est invisible pour les yeux” which translates to “What is essential is invisible to the eye.” HOPE Theatre Arts seeks to tell the stories that encourage us to consider what is essential. Founded in 2019, HOPE Theatre Arts has produced several in-person and virtual productions to rave reviews.
