About the Show Less...

A contemporary stage adaptation of the classic story about a very shy toy Rabbit. Read More >

There was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; and for at least two hours the Boy loved him.

This Easter, join the Unicorn The Velveteen Rabbit, a heart-warming story about a very shy toy Rabbit who longs for nothing more than to become real. He spends his days waiting patiently on the nursery floor, watching the Boy play with the other toys and dreaming of being picked up and loved. And then, one day he is rediscovered and all his hopes start to come true…

First published in 1922, this classic American tale loses nothing of its power, magic and charm in this contemporary adaptation for the Unicorn stage.

The Velveteen Rabbit it suitable for ages 4+
