Winter / Spring 2018: Classes


"ELVES" (ages 4-5)

A sweet tale with a happy ending! Toy magic is special magic. It can even sometimes bring toys to life. When a stuffed bunny meets some real rabbits, he longs to be real too. The Teddy Bear and The Doll, and even Sheriff Woody and Buzz Lightyear lend a hand. Then they discover the Rocking Horse knows a secret. Will it entice the Toy Fairies to bring their special enchantment?

This musical is just right for non-readers who love to play-act and pretend. The class also plays lots of fun imagination games in a gentle environment.

So join us in the playroom for fun with great friends. “THE VELVETEEN RABBIT” is ready for playtime!

It’s up to the shy new girl to unite all of the different talents and create the best show ever. Cool pop songs and famous Broadway tunes combine with lots of great characters in this glittering musical gem.
