This year’s play is an adaptation of the popular children’s book, “The Velveteen Rabbit,” written by Margery Williams. Watch as The Pushcart Players bring the book to life! A young boy’s love and a little nursery magic help transform the Velveteen Rabbit from a favorite plaything into a real rabbit. The Boy and Velveteen embark on exciting imaginary adventures, from deep dark caves to the wide-open sea, and together they learn the true meaning of friendship in this musical re-telling of one of America’s favorite storybooks.

Attendees are invited to engage with The Cumberland County Library at their informational table before and after the performance to learn more about the book. They will also host a small hands-on activity for children once the play has ended!
