Spotlight Players is pleased to announce their upcoming Spotlight Junior performances of The Velveteen Rabbit at the beautiful Village Theater in Canton. The entire cast is made up of local children who are very excited to share their love of theater with you and your family.
The Velveteen Rabbit is a children’s story written by Margery Williams. It was her first story and has been republished many times over the years. Originally published in 1922, The Velveteen Rabbit tells the charming tale of how a stuffed toy rabbit has the opportunity to be brought to life through the love of his boy. “There are two ways to be real,” the Skin Horse toy in the nursery 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 already real to The Boy but he wants to become a real rabbit to the entire world. On the night that The Boy’s life is in danger from the scarlet fever, a Toy Fairy appears and gives the Velveteen Rabbit a chance to become real.
Does the Velveteen Rabbit go with the fairy and become real? Or does he stay with The Boy? You will have to find out by coming out to see the show!
