In the world of real and unreal, things are not always what they seem. With a dash of nursery magic, ordinary toys come to life and mute the boundaries between real and imaginary. This heartwarming adaptation of Margery Williams' classic children's story shows how the power of love brings about a remarkable transformation for an ordinary toy bunny.

Audience members are invited to bring their favorite stuffed toy to watch the show for free!
