The Velveteen Rabbit
, based on the book by Margery Williams
"When a child loves you for a long, long time...then you become Real." So says the Horse to the Velveteen Rabbit in Margery Williams' famous and much-loved literary classic. With life-sized puppets; masks; magic; and an original musical score by Tony, Emmy, and Grammy Award-Winning Composer/Arranger Don Sebesky, Enchantment Theatre Company brings to life this charming tale of love and devotion.
New Symphony Production: Mother Goose
Inspired by the rich musical imagery of composer Maurice Ravel, we enter the world of Mother Goose as she tells the enchanting stories of her childhood: Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, the Princess of the Pagodas, and more. As she spins her tales, magic takes hold and she herself is transformed into each romantic heroine, discovering youth, lost love, and new possibilities. This is the perfect program to honor the 100th anniversary year of this enchanting masterpiece's premiere.
