NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - The Westminster College Celebrity Series for Kids will present The Enchantment Theatre Company's The Velveteen Rabbit Tuesday, April 9, at 6:30 p.m. in Orr Auditorium.
"When a child loves you for a long, long time...then you become real," says the horse to the Velveteen Rabbit in Margery Williams' famous and much-loved literary classic. A plush rabbit, given as a gift to a young boy, yearns for the day the boy will choose him as his special playmate, so that he can become real.
This innovative production combines the theatrical magic and signature style of Enchantment Theatre with the musical magic of Tony, Emmy and Grammy Award-winning composer/arranger Don Sebesky. With an original musical score, life-sized puppets, masks and magic, Enchantment Theatre Company brings to life this charming tale of love and devotion, creating an unforgettable theatrical experience for the whole family.
The show is sponsored by Westminster's Drinko Center for Experiential Learning, Dr. Richard Ribarevski Orthodontics, Family Medical Care of Lawrence County, Park Inn by Radisson, Dr. Pek C. Teh, M.D., F.A.C.O.G and PCT Health Network, Inc.
