This beautiful rendition of the beloved children's book by Margery Williams is sure to create holiday enchantment for your family.
The story centers on a young child who receives a stuffed velveteen rabbit for Christmas. The rabbit is shunned by many for the more expensive toys in the nursery so it befriends a "skin horse" who explains what it means to be "real."
The child's love for the rabbit makes it real and allows it to overcome all of its fears.
As a special treat, the cast will provide some audience participation games during the presentation.
Also, bring a toy for Toys for Tots and enjoy a free cup of hot chocolate.
