Adorable bunnies abound in this endearing tale brought to life on the puppet stage
WHAT: Peter Rabbit by Thistle Theatre of Seattle, WA
Thistle Theatre captures the beloved world of Beatrix Potter by combining “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” with “The Tale of Benjamin Bunny.” One lovely morning Peter’s sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail, obediently pick berries, but Peter goes on a daring adventure in Mr. McGregor’s garden. After losing his clean blue jacket in a narrow escape, Peter must venture once more into the garden to retrieve it, this time accompanied by his cousin Benjamin Bunny. Will Peter and Benjamin make it out of the garden safely?
Peter Rabbit marks Thistle Theatre’s second appearance at the Center. They made their debut in January with the bilingual Mexican folktale Brother Coyote and Sister Fox. For more about the company, visit www.thistletheatre.org.
