From the beloved tales of Beatrix Potter . . .
“Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were – Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail and Peter….” These famous opening lines of The Tale of Peter Rabbit have enchanted young audiences for over one hundred years with the exploits of a charming hero, who, going against his mother’s wishes, has adventures (and misadventures) in Mr. McGregor’s garden. Beatrix Potter created an instant classic with the little blue-coated rabbit who we recognize as both boy and rabbit, wild and civilized, and who has become an icon of childhood since he first hopped out of the pages of a story book and into children’s hearts.
Now Enchantment Theatre Company is delighted to collaborate with the Estate of Beatrix Potter and Penguin Books UK to present the authorized theatrical version of Peter Rabbit Tales. Peter Rabbit, his sister Flopsy and his cousin Benjamin are all grown up! Flopsy and Benjamin are married with 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 them, and along the way, relive their childhood misadventures with Mr. McGregor and his cat. 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. With delightful derring-do, Peter hilariously pits the badger and fox against one another and rescues the baby bunnies. Benjamin and Flopsy are joyously reunited with their children, and all return home together to live happily ever after!
EDUCATIONAL LOBBY DISPLAY: Come an hour early to explore!
In celebration of Beatrix Potter’s 150th Birthday Anniversary, the Enchantment Theatre Company has prepared a special educational lobby display including photographs of Ms. Potter with her actual real life animal friends as well as copies of her artwork showing her original renderings of the characters that will be seen onstage. Highlights include the many ways Ms. Potter was a person ahead of her time as author, illustrator, natural scientist, conservationist, businesswoman, philanthropist, and emancipated woman.
Study Guide and online materials are available.
