SYNOPSIS: This is the classic story of the Velveteen Rabbit, or how toys become real. It is a heartwarming, interactive play for children.
This show was first produced by Attic Players in Tallahassee, Florida, in 1999. Eight actors will play the roles of Old Horse, Boy, Mother, Jack-in-the-Box, Tin Soldier, Velveteen Rabbit, Doctor, and Fairy. While some roles clearly must be either male or female (boy, mother), others (doctor, velveteen rabbit, etc.) may be played either way.
Old Horse plays the main narrator, and will do the most interacting with the audience. Fairy will also interact with the kids.
Depending on the audience, this show should run about 30 minutes. It can be done on a small or large stage, with few props.
