From the company that brought you Thumbelina.

‘When a child loves you… really loves you, then you become real.’

Once upon a time, in a Boy's playroom, bursting with marvellous mechanical toys and astonishing automated knick-knacks, there sat a very lonely and abandoned Velveteen Rabbit. This soft and squishy toy longed for the day when the playful pair would set off on many thrilling adventures. When that magical day finally arrived, off they set to explore the wonder of the world. Come along on their fantastical journey and see the real transformation love can make.

In On The Act, Theatre Royal Wakefield’s young company for aspiring theatre-makers, brings to life Margery Williams' heart-warming tale, with a mix of song, dance and storytelling.
