Saturday was a Daddy/son bonding day while I relaxed at home.
Scott took Ian to see The Velveteen Rabbit, a play about how toys become real, at DR2 Theater. The DR2 Kids’ series mission is to introduce smart, fun, high quality plays and musicals for younger audiences.
THE VELVETEEN RABBIT is a joyous testament to the eternal power of a child’s imagination. This classic tale comes to life for a whole new generation in this wonder-filled production created by Kevin Del Aguila.
With a little bit of nursery magic, three actors and their simple props become a wise old rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical playthings, a kind-hearted fairy and, of course, a stuffed rabbit who is transformed by the love of a young boy.
THE VELVETEEN RABBIT is written and directed by Kevin Del Aguila (Altar Boyz; Click, Clack, Moo) and based on the popular children’s novel by Margery Williams. The production features scenic design by Lake Simmons and costume design by Patrick Johnson.
“It wasn’t elaborate but they put on a good show. The three actors really hustled,” said my husband Scott. “The play was imaginative and fun to watch. The children really enjoyed the action and were able to follow the plot. I think the audience really enjoyed the production.”
After the performance, the actors posed for photos in the lobby.
