The Velveteen Rabbit

By Philip Grecian. From the book by Margery Williams

A Spotlight Jr Players full-length 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.” More than anything he 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. The boy, who is ill with scarlet fever, will die without him. Will the Velveteen Rabbit go with the Toy Fairy, or will his love for the boy 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 young audiences with comedy, pathos, adventure and a final triumph for the hero, who learns that love makes all things real.

  • Performance dates: October 17-20, 2019
