The Velveteen Rabbit begins performances November 16 at off-Broadway’s DR2 Theatre. Starring Kristin Parker, Jim Stanek and John Curcuru, the new play based on the beloved children’s book will open November 18. Written and directed by Kevin Del Aguila, The Velveteen Rabbit will play a limited engagement through January 27, 2013.
Based on the classic picture book by Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit is the story of a stuffed rabbit who longs to become real. With a little bit of nursery magic, three actors and a few props transform into a wise, old rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical playthings, a kind-hearted fairy and of course, a stuffed rabbit loved by a young boy. The new play is recommended for children age four through eight.
The Velveteen Rabbit features scenic design by Lake Simmons and costume design by Patrick Johnson.
