|My son’s an animal lover. In fact, as we talk about life & what the future holds, being a Veterinarian (or Lego Builder) is high on his list of career choices. He adores his dogs (aka “the mutts” ) and ever since he was a baby, he’s had a profound relationship with his menagerie of stuffed animals. Teddy Blue has been in Son’s corner, under the bed, and in his heart ever since his sister gave it to him as his very first gift. A love so strong between a boy and his teddy is the stuffing that makes for a wonderful legend just likeThe Velveteen Rabbit
Take your children to see South Coast Repertory’s Junior Players presentation of The Velveteen Rabbit March 20-21 and 27-28 in the theatre’s Nicholas Studio. The horse, the bear, the clown and all the rest will be onstage, along with many wild rabbits and, of course, a boy named James and his Nana. They’ll be portrayed by SCR’s Junior Players (grades 6-8), one of two young ensemble groups comprised of acting students who have been chosen through audition after at least two years in SCR’s Theatre Conservatory. They attend classes twice weekly during the school year with additional rehearsal time prior to their annual performance. (The Teen Players, grades 9-12, will perform later in the spring.)
This is a perfect event to introduce your children to theatre arts, and I recommend making a day of it by taking the family for a meal someplace fun like The Rainforest Café across the street at South Coast Plaza before or after the performance. In fact, I feel so strongly about this I’m having a giveaway for two tickets for the Saturday, March 27, at 1 p.m. performance!
