Leap into your imagination this spring with Carousel Theatre for Young People’s The Velveteen Rabbit



This spring, the charming tale of The Velveteen Rabbit leaps onto the stage at Waterfront Theatre to celebrate the boundless imagination and the power of believing. With a dash of magic, the three actors Steffanie Davis, Victor Mariano, and Amanda Testini transform their playspace into a children’s nursery with a rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical toys, a kind-hearted fairy and a toy rabbit who is transformed by one little boy’s love.
