Based on the classic story by Margery Williams
Book by Bethany Price
Music & Lyrics by Erik Przytulski
A brand new theatrical adaptation of Margery Williams’ classic children’s story, this version is extremely faithful to the spirit, story and time period of Ms. Williams’ beautiful tale. Great care was taken to expand the story into a musical theatre work that was enjoyable for the entire family, while staying true to the style, essence and powerful themes found in the original book.
The Velveteen Rabbit received its World Premiere by the students at Minnie Gant Elementary School in February 2010. A second Long Beach performance was mounted by children’s theatre company GO-FAME at the CSULB University Theatre in January 2011. Since then, licensing rights have been approved for productions in Orange County, CA, and in Virginia.
