When the Velveteen Rabbit first arrives in the nursery on the Girl’s birthday, he finds himself quickly overshadowed by her other fancier, mechanical toys.
Feeling forgotten and sorry for himself, 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 Girl finally notices him, the Rabbit quickly becomes her constant companion. But, one day, tragedy strikes – the Girl falls ill, and he is forcibly wrenched away from her side.
Where will the Rabbit go now? Can he ever become Real? And, most importantly, will he ever see his 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!
