“The Velveteen Rabbit” is a story children of all ages love. As the Velveteen Rabbit dreams of becoming a real live rabbit, the wise old Skin Horse tells him he will only become real “when a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but really loves you.” This moving and joyful production, based on the Margery Williams book, has been adapted for the stage by Catherine Gray.


The Barter Players are a group of professional artists who perform world-class theatre for young people. They believe in theatre that awakens the imaginations of the most exciting, most participatory audience in the world: kids. Barter Player performances focus on what brings out bravery in all of us, and their shows never talk down to the audience. The child in all of us deserves wild adventure, incredible story, and the excitement of live theatre so close you can reach out and touch it.

Adult tickets are $15.00. All children and students are free to attend. Pro-Art season tickets will be honored.
