The Velveteen Rabbit (musical)
The Velveteen Rabbit (musical)
Book, lyrics and music by Barnes Boffey and Paul Pilcher. Additional music by Bob Love. Based on the book by Margery Williams.

Cast: 30m., or w., doubling possible. "What is real?" the Velveteen Rabbit asked the Skin Horse. "Does it hurt?" Often humorous to the point of absurdity, at times profound without being heavy, this musical adaptation of Margery Williams' classic follows the adventures of the toy rabbit as he tries to become real. On his way, the rabbit must deal with the Top Banana Nana, who rules the nursery with an iron hand, and the other more haughty toys. The musical moves between the worlds of the toy closet and the nursery and is sprinkled with songs which bring responses from total laughter to misty eyes. The show can be done with an adjustable cast and has been performed and enjoyed by people from six to 60 years old. The Velveteen Rabbit is special because he identifies with children, and the message will never diminish as long as people search for the magic of love. Multiple simple sets. Approximate Running Time: 75 minutes.
