When the Velveteen Rabbit first arrives in the Boy’s nursery on Christmas morning, she finds herself quickly overshadowed by the other fancier, mechanical toys.
Feeling forgotten and sorry for herself, the Rabbit seeks the advice of the old and wise Skin Horse, who explains that a toy’s greatest achievement is to be truly loved by a child – for only then can a toy become Real.
When the Boy finally notices her, she quickly becomes his constant companion. But, one day, tragedy strikes – the Boy falls ill, and the Rabbit is forcibly wrenched away from his side.
Where will the Rabbit go now? Can she ever become Real? And, most importantly, will she ever see her best friend again?
Wild Rice is proud to present our first A Little Wild show – a brand-new Singaporean adaptation of Margery Williams’ beloved classic, just in time for its 101st anniversary. This endearing tale has enthralled generations of children through its exploration of friendship, self-acceptance and what it means to be truly alive. Reimagined for the stage with joy, humour and a touch of magic, The Velveteen Rabbit is the perfect show for the young and the young at heart!
