What does it mean to be real? And loved?
Oh. My. Deliciousness.

Pack up your children (your inner child included) and get the whole family tickets to this whimsical and beautiful experience.

Yes. Even if they're planning a school holiday break glued to their devices.

Yes. Even if it's been so long since you last went to the theatre you can't remember what it was like pre-lockdowns/pre-COVID/pre-learned-to-live-online.
Again. Yes. Even if you don't have children:

Borrow someone else's.

Or indulge your own inner kiddo.

Because you cannot miss this total escape into childhood storytime that's a delightful retelling of a classic story of hardship, growing up, illness, hope, and belief in the magic there's something beyond the life we're living right now.

Perfect for the Easter break, this recount of an 100-year-old tale many of us would have had read to us as children. You'll recognise the beauty of a timeless classic - because it has lessons that endure - even 'though we no longer deal with situations like Scarlet Fever we certainly have all had recent practice of questioning ourselves and asking, "what does it all mean" and "what's after this?"

And: what makes us real?

Adapted by Greg Lissaman from the original story written in 1922, this production brims with hope, love, and adventure. Forget the world outside with a wise (sometimes forgetful) horse, some enthusiastic bulldozers, a special fairy, and a sweet bunny asking all the hard questions; about life, love, and sacrifice.

The Velveteen Rabbit got 5 bunny ears of approval from my younger guest, and now we have to read the book all over again.
