Act One: Peter Rabbit Tales

Act One: Peter Rabbit Tales

By Jacob Arnold

 

“Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail, and Peter. ”

 

Since 1902, that magical first line has been spoken by parents to their children all over the world. What follows those words is the whimsical story of a mischievous rabbit named Peter and his many adventures that include exploring Mr. McGregor’s garden, outfoxing Mr. Tod, and rescuing the Flopsy Bunnies from the disagreeable badger, Tommy Brock.

The popularity of such a well-beloved story has endured through the years, and was adapted into many television shows and movies, and has inspired toys, interior decorations, and even coffee mugs!

But what is it about these stories from Beatrix Potter, English author and illustrator, that  is so beloved to people of all ages?

Perhaps its because, in the same way that fairy tales have stood the test of time, “Peter Rabbit Tales” has stood out in the minds of many children and adults who recall not only the fun and imaginative stories, but also the lifelong lessons they learned from reading them.

These timeless rabbit tales explore the wonders and imagination of children as they grow up, while also teaching lessons to help understand the world around them.

In this enchanting adaptation just in time for Beatrix Potter’s 150th birthday, Wharton Center presents Enchantment Theatre Company’s Peter Rabbit Tales on February 27th for the interactive theatre experience that is described as  “inventive and endearing; it fully captures the spirit of the beloved stories, the essence of childhood, and the imagination of the audience, both young and old” by Phindie.com
