Interlakes Summer Theatre revisits Margery Williams classic and heartwarming tale of “The Velveteen Rabbit” with a brand new musical adaptation as part of its 5th Anniversary Children’s Series.

Will is a charmingly imaginative yet lonely child who finds solace in his myriad of wonderful toys. The most special toy in the nursery ends up being a little velveteen rabbit that comes to life and believes he is Real. Rabbit and Will’s remarkable journey of acceptance and understanding is filled with magic, laughter, and song.

The cast features local youth actors including Abby Scott of Tamworth, Margaret Gocha of Plymouth, Skyler Alexander of Grafton, Robbie Sassan, Kayla Sassan, Megan Fountain, Emily Wild, and John Findlay of Meredith, and Bryan Rowell of Braintree, MA.

The adaptation was written by returning director Mark Hoffner. Emily Ellett (musical director), Jordan Haskins (choreographer), and Sam Vawter (production designer) round out the professional team. The eclectic score features original music by Cecilia Senocak, a singer-songwriter from New York City, and Mindy Cimini, musical director for Interlakes’ mainstage.

Velveteen Rabbit runs less than and hour and will be performed at the air conditioned Interlakes HS Auditorium on July 13 and 14 at both 11 AM and 1 PM. All tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the Interlakes Summer Theatre box office.
