There once was a Velveteen Rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a Rabbit should be; and for at least two hours the Boy loved him.
Join us as one of our biggest hits returns for a third time after a Broadway transfer. The Velveteen Rabbit is a heart-warming story about a very shy toy rabbit who longs for nothing more than to become real. He spends his days waiting patiently on the nursery floor, watching the Boy play with other toys and dreaming of being picked up and loved. And then, one day, he is rediscovered and all his hopes start to come true…
First published in 1922, this classic American tale loses nothing of its power, magic and charm in this bold and adventure-filled adaptation for the Unicorn stage.
