Spring-Ford Area High School presents The Velveteen Rabbit
The Velveteen Rabbit is an emotional journey through time, as told through the eyes of a young man looking back on his childhood. By reliving the relationship between his 4-year-old self and his favorite toy, the velveteen rabbit, he rediscovers the true meaning of friendship. Central to the story is, of course, the velveteen rabbit, who is introduced to the idea of becoming real by the old rocking horse. The play explores the rewards of loyalty, the poignancy of loss, and the wonderful, surprising powers of love.  

There are two evening performances, November 4th and 5th at 7 p.m., and a Relaxed Performance on November 5th at 1 p.m.
