The charming tale of The Velveteen Rabbit, by Kevin Del Aguila, based on the book by Margery Williams, leaps onto the stage at Waterfront Theatre to celebrate the boundless imagination and the power of believing. With a dash of magic, the three actors Steffanie Davis, Victor Mariano, and Amanda Testini transform their play space into a children’s nursery with a rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical toys, a kind-hearted fairy and a toy rabbit who is transformed by one little boy’s love.
“Nothing ever stays the same. Everything grows. Everything changes.” — The Velveteen Rabbit, adapted by Kevin Del Aguila
“A certain magic takes over… and this production, like The Velveteen Rabbit, it comes thrillingly wonderfully alive.” — The New York Times
