The Velveteen Rabbit

5 February 2012

Presented by Backhand Theatre


The Velveteen Rabbit is an inquisitive toy, he has bright button eyes and soft and velvety fur, and he doesn’t have any cogs or gears or clock work. He is just a rabbit with big dreams. He loves his boy very much and asks his friend the skin horse what it means to be real. The skin horse tells him that to be truly real you have to be loved to the point where you have no fur because it has all been hugged away.

A heart-warming classic that shows everyone what it means to be loved. This beautiful story is brought to life using stunning and realistic puppetry that encourages children to believe in the magic of the tale.

The Velveteen Rabbit is young children’s theatre at its best: a delightfully staged piece, which has you believing in the power of childhood love to achieve anything.
