This year Lightning Banjo Productions is bringing THE VELVETEEN RABBIT to the stage and they have been busy getting ready for this sensational seasonal play.


The tale of stuffed bunny originally published in 1922 has been re-imagined in so many ways over time and we cannot wait to see it performed at the Registry Theatre this December. For those unfamiliar with the story it begins with a toy bunny Christmas present which makes it the perfect start to this holiday season.
The Velveteen Rabbit becomes a special toy for the little girl that lives in the nursery, but when illness strikes the bunny's bravery is tested. It seems that all hope may be lost, but that, as all boys and girls know, is when the very best magic can happen.
We have been to Lightning Banjo Productions performances in the past and because their family friendly plays are so delightful the tickets go very quickly! Be sure to grab your tickets before they are gone!

  1. I would love to win the tickets because it would be a great opportunity for my three sons to experience live theatre, also because a child I teach is in the play so I
    could show her my support!!!
