Play #1: The Velveteen Rabbit
By Patrick Flynn
Based on the book by Margery Williams
In this brand-new adaptation of The Velveteen Rabbit, Margery Williams’ classic story springs to magical life. When The Child gets The Rabbit, she is, at first, disappointed with her gift. But as the two quest and adventure through her storybooks, both Rabbit and Child grow, change, and care for each other. Over time, they discover that love is the greatest force in the universe and can make impossible things real.
Begins September 14 at Florida Studio Theatre.
Play #2: Imagination Rocks
Take the next step in the series with a play that will inspire your students to write plays of their very own!
