A narrated production set to selections by Benjamin Britten, The Velveteen Rabbit is brimming with wit, festive costumes, and madcap characters. This special performance will feature several local children dancing alongside the professional company. Running time for The Velveteen Rabbit is approximately 70 minutes plus one intermission. The production is suitable for audience members ages 3 and up. Tickets available at pagetheatre.org or 507-457-1715.
