The Velveteen Rabbit

A child's love of his favorite toy literally brings this story to life.

Dec 4-19, 2021 | McColl Family Theatre | For all ages
A little boy awakens Christmas morning to discover a Velveteen Rabbit among his gifts. Adored at first, then cast to the toy box, the Rabbit is snubbed by the other toys for being old-fashioned. Over time, a friendship blossoms. The Velveteen Rabbit learns what it means to be truly loved by the Boy - and the smiles and tears that come from being "real". Adapted from the classic book, this poignant story has charmed generations of families and continues to be cherished by audiences today.

Special Activities

  • BookWalk - Little White Rabbit
    + What's this?
    BookWalk is a self-guided, building-wide scavenger hunt. It's a fun way to enjoy a story and exercise at the same! Picture spreads from Kevin Henkes' book Little White Rabbit have been plated in silver frames throughout ImaginOn with early literacy activities attached to each station that relate to the image. Scavenger Hunt sheets to track your search can be picked up at the Welcome Desk or in the Spangler Library. The pictures do not need to be found in any particular order, and prizes are available at the Spangler desk for participation, regardless of completion. If patrons need clues or hints, every service point has at least one image visible nearby to point to as a reference.
