The Velveteen Rabbit

Based on the book by Margery Williams

“Where the young stay young and the old grow young forever”

The Velveteen Rabbit is an enchanting tale of the relationship between a child and his toy rabbit. To others, he’s just an old you, but the boy and the rabbit believe he’s real – and the scene is set for a story of great emotional power.
