In celebration of Beatrix Potter's 150th birthday anniversary, Enchantment Theatre brings her captivating stories to life. Using fantastic masks, whimsical puppets, gorgeous scenery and original music, the magical, marvelous World of Beatrix PotterTM comes alive on stage.
Our production is based on three of Beatrix Potter's "rabbit tales": The Tale of Peter Rabbit, The Tale of Benjamin Bunny and The Tale of Mr. Tod. Peter Rabbit, his sister Flopsy and his cousin Benjamin are all grown up; Flopsy and Benjamin are married with baby bunnies of their own. When the nasty badger, Tommy Brock, decides to steal the babies, Peter and Benjamin set off on an adventure to rescue the bunnies. Along the way, both of them have flashbacks to their childhood misadventures, when Peter was almost caught in Mr. McGregor's garden and when Benjamin and Peter were saved from the McGregor's cat by Benjamin's father. On their journey, the cousins manage to avoid the dangerous fox, Mr. Tod, and they recruit Squirrel Nutkin, a cheeky squirrel who's lost his tail, and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, the kindly hedgehog, to help them find the bunnies. Back at home, a worried Flopsy decides to follow the cousins.
With Peter, Benjamin and Flopsy in close pursuit, Tommy Brock breaks into Mr. Tod's house and makes himself at home. Digging a tunnel under the house, the trio are about to rescue the bunnies, when Mr. Tod appears. With delightful derring-do, Peter hilariously pits the badger and fox against one another and rescues the baby bunnies. The fox and badger chase each another off into the woods, and Benjamin and Flopsy are joyously reunited with their children. Peter is praised for his bravery, and the rabbits triumphantly travel home. Squirrel Nutkin and Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle join the family for a country dance, celebrating the rescue and Peter's return to the family fold.
