"4 STARS... Sad, happy, thought-provoking for all ages... the lesson it teaches is timeless"  –Chicago Stage Standard
 
"RECOMMENDED... Elise Kauzlaric's adaptation preserves the best of Williams's text, and Jessica Kuehnau Wardell's inspired costumes add considerable charm."  –Chicago Reader
 
"RECOMMENDED... An affable and vibrant staging"  –New City


One Christmas morning, a shy stuffed bunny enters the world of a young boys nursery. Initially ignored in favor of more modern toys, she waits patiently to be noticed, wondering if she will ever be loved like the others. When the wise old Skin Horse reveals the majesty and mystery of what it means to become Real, the Velveteen Rabbit begins an odyssey of the heart to make a lasting connection with her boy that will endure for always. Return to a simpler time with this heartwarming story about the transformative power of love. Based on the classic 1922 book by Margery Williams.

Recommended for kids 5 and up. Children under 2 are not permitted.

Based on the beloved classic by Margery Williams
Adapted by Elise Kauzlaric
Directed by Amanda Link
Produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com)
