DULUTH, MN - The classic tale of the toy bunny that longs to become real comes to life in this story theater production of "The Velveteen Rabbit," at 10 a.m. Monday, Nov. 5, in the Mitchell Auditorium on campus. Tickets are $8.
Produced by Theatreworks USA's story theater production, "The Velveteen Rabbit" is the first of two children's shows that are a part of the College's 2012-2013 Mitchell Performing Arts series.
Just as the velveteen rabbit becomes real, the audience's imagination converts three actors and their simple props into a wise old rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical playthings, and a kind-hearted fairy. And of course, a student rabbit is transformed by the love of a young boy, a joyous testament to the wonder of a child's imagination.
Tickets can be purchased online through the Spotlight Box Office at spotlight.css.edu or call (218) 723-7000. Spotlight@css.edu is St. Scholastica's one-stop shop for arts and lectures information and tickets.
