Written as a “memory play,” The Velveteen Rabbit is an emotional journey through time, as told through the eyes of a middle-aged man looking back on his childhood. By reliving the relationship between his 6-year-old self and his favorite toy, the Velveteen Rabbit, he rediscovers the true meaning of friendship. Central to the story is, of course, the velveteen rabbit, who is introduced to the idea of becoming real by the old rocking horse. The play explores the rewards of loyalty, the poignancy of loss, and the wonderful, surprising powers of love. Presented by Heart of Texas Children’s Theatre, Waco’s professional theatre for young audiences, this classic holiday tale is sure to delight the whole family!
