Theatre Preview: The Velveteen Rabbit
At Milpitas Rainbow Theatre
Margery Williams' beloved classic tale "The Velveteen Rabbit" follows the adventures of the toy rabbit as he tries to become real. "There are two ways to be real," says the Skin Horse. "The first is when you are real to one special child, and the second is when you are real to the world."
One night, the Toy Fairies offer him his chance, but he must leave with them immediately. His boy, who is ill with scarlet fever, will die without him. Will the Velveteen Rabbit go with the Toy Fairies or will his love for the boy cause him to turn his back on the thing he wants most? A final triumph awaits the hero who learns that love makes all things real.
