About the Play
"There are two ways to be real," the Skin Horse says.  "The first is when you are real
to one special child and the second is when you are real to the world."  
The Velveteen Rabbit is real to Alex.  
More than anything the Velveteen Rabbit wants to be a real rabbit -- real to the world.
One night the Toy Fairy offers him his chance, but he must leave with her
immediately.  Alex, who is ill with scarlet fever, will die without him.
Will the Velveteen Rabbit go with the Toy Fairy, or will his love for Alex cause him to
turn his back on the thing he wants most?  If he stays, what will happen to him?  
Margery Williams' beloved tale is faithfully told and carefully expanded for the stage.
The Velveteen Rabbit
provides audiences of all ages with comedy, pathos,
adventure and a final triumph for the hero, who learns that love makes all things real.
