The Adventures of Peter Rabbit & His Friends

  • Poster for The Adventures of Peter Rabbit

    Don't miss The Adventures of Peter Rabbit & His Friends by Joseph Robinette, March 2-4 at 7pm! Tickets are $7 on GoFan.

    Synopsis: Five delightful tales including Peter Rabbit, The Tailor of Gloucester and Jemima Puddle-Duck are interwoven with the fascinating life of their creator, Beatrix Potter, in this enchanting, enlightening entertainment for all ages. The play moves back and forth from the fantasy world she created to the intriguing story of Beatrix Potter herself, who overcame her lonely, strict childhood—in which her writings and drawings were discouraged in the male-oriented Victorian era—to become the most widely read children's author of all times. We also meet Beatrix's governess, Annie (who narrates the play), and Annie's children for whom many of the stories were originally written. Both entertaining and educational, this play is a must for any child—or adult—who has ever fallen under the magical spell of Peter Rabbit and his many friends. 

    Produced by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois
