Velveteen Rabbit

Looking for something the entire family will enjoy this holiday season? This beautiful rendition of the beloved children’s book by Margery Williams will be sure to put you in the holiday spirit. The story centers on a child who receives a stuffed velveteen rabbit for Christmas. The rabbit is shunned by many of the more expensive toys in the nursery so the child befriends a stuffed skin horse who explains what it means to be “real.” The child's love for the bunny makes the bunny real and the child is able to overcome all fears.
This timeless story allows young audiences to join in the fun, experiencing the magic that only a live theatre production can offer. Scott Davidson's lively adaptation stretches the imagination and encourages audience participation. Join the Velveteen Rabbit, the Skin Horse, the Train, and the Wind-Up Mouse as they embark on a journey from Toyland to Reality.

The Kirk Players are proud to present a wonderfully staged adaptation of The Velveteen Rabbit at Loyola's Cuneo Mansion and Gardens throughout the holiday season.
