The Velveteen Rabbit or how toys become real

User symbolFor everyone

Inspired by  Margery Williams' tale

balletLORENT invites you into a magical world with their retelling of The Velveteen Rabbit suitable for children aged 4+ years, with a version especially adapted for children aged between 3 years and under.

In both shows, toys come to life through the magic of storytelling, music, and dance. A toy rabbit and a boy embark on an adventure about growing up and the meaning of love. At the end of the performance’s children are offered an opportunity to interact with the costumed performers.

For the performance created for children aged 3 years and under, youngsters are invited to watch and wonder from a comfy cushion of their own up close, as the spectacle unfolds.

‘When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real’
