Opening night is June 1 for the timeless classic
What does it mean to be real?
The Velveteen Rabbit can explain it all.
“Once you are Real, you can’t become unreal again,” is a quote from the famous play. “It last for always.”
A stuffed toy rabbit’s quest to become real through the love of a child drives this adaptation of Margery Williams’ timeless tale. The story celebrates the power of love to transform our lives.
And this story will be told by Journey Theater when “Velveteen Rabbit” opens June 1 at Crosspointe Baptist Church, 9810 NE 76th Street in Vancouver.
Join a boy and his rabbit in a world of strange and wonderful magic with talking toys, wild adventures, and secret burrows. They come to discover the true meaning of what it is to be Real.
