Things To Look Forward To!
The Velveteen Rabbit
By: Margery Williams Adapted by: Janet Allard
Charleston Heights Arts Center | 800 S. Brush St.
It’s Christmas Day and a young boy receives a rabbit made of Velveteen. Other toys like Boat or Lion tease Rabbit for he is far too simple to interest the boy. But one night when the boy cannot find one of his favorite toys he chooses Rabbit as his companion. He becomes one of his closest companions. Boy insists that Rabbit is real and not just a toy! When the boy falls sick with Scarlet Fever the Doctor insists that all his toys are destroyed to avoid contamination, including Rabbit. Rabbit is taken out to be destroyed; thinking there is no point in being real and loved to just end up being thrown away. His tears fall upon a mysterious flower. A fairy appears and makes him real to everyone, not just the Boy. This strange and magical world of talking toys and wild adventures celebrates the power of love and discovering the true meaning of what it is to be Real.
