Paramount Presents: Peter Rabbit™ Tales – Live on Stage!
Live Events | 10/18/2019 | 6:00PM
Don’t miss the stage retelling of the classic Beatrix Potter favorites! This wonderful live event is not only for the next generation of littles, but also for the young-at-heart who fondly remember the adventures of Potter’s Peter Rabbit.
Enchantment Theatre Company’s live production is based on three of Beatrix Potter’s “rabbit tales”: The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Benjamin Bunny and The Tale of Mr. Tod. Peter Rabbit, his sister Flopsy and his cousin Benjamin are all grown up; Flopsy and Benjamin are married with baby bunnies of their own. When the nasty badger, Tommy Brock, decides to steal the babies, Peter and Benjamin set off on an adventure to rescue the bunnies. Along the way, both have flashbacks to their childhood misadventures, when Peter was almost caught in Mr. McGregor’s garden and when Benjamin and Peter were saved from the McGregor’s cat by Benjamin’s father. On their journey, the cousins manage to avoid the dangerous fox, Mr. Tod, and they recruit Squirrel Nutkin, a cheeky squirrel who’s lost his tail, and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, the kindly hedgehog, to help them find the bunnies. Back at home, a worried Flopsy decides to follow the cousins, and join the search.
More About Enchantment Theatre Company: Enchantment Theatre Company is a non-profit arts organization resident in Philadelphia. They have been guided by their mission: to create original theater for young audiences and families. They accomplish this through the imaginative telling of stories that inspire, challenge and enrich their audience, on stage and in the classroom. All of Enchantment’s productions are original adaptations of new and classic fables, myths and legends, combined with original music. Drawing on great theatrical traditions from around the world—from the Bunraku theater of Japan, to the shadow puppets of Indonesia, to commedia dell’arte—Enchantment weaves these together in compelling productions of beauty and inspiration. They employ a unique combination of art forms to tell their stories: masked actors, magic and illusion, puppets (often life-size) and mime, all set to classical or original music.
