Come Audition for FIPA's Youth Production of

The Velveteen Rabbit!

Directed by Amy Beach


This enchanting version of the classic children’s story will touch your heart. Unbeknownst to Andrew’s grumpy nursemaid, there is a life to the playthings on the floor and in the toy cabinet when the lights go out in the nursery Timothy Lion, Train Engine, Skin Horse, Model Boat and Velveteen Rabbit all spring to life. Actors represent the ’spirit’ of each toy-chattering, bickering and sharing their feelings in hilarious and touching interactions. With narration by the tender and grandfatherly Skin Horse Spirit, you’ll laugh and cry along with the characters as they endure the trials and tribulations of their unique experiences-especially the Rabbit Spirit, who learns about love when he gains the affection of the young boy. The raggedy stuffed bunny is with him every moment until Andrew comes down with scarlet fever and the doctor orders all bedding, including the much-loved toy, to be burned. Rabbit Spirit escapes that terrible fate by a ’hare,’ finding himself among the wild rabbits and the beautiful nursery magic fairy. With a late-Victorian flavor in the dialogue and costuming, this adaptation creatively and beautifully renders for the stage the miraculous story of a stuffed animal made real by a child’s love and a little magic.

Ebenezer Scrooge, obsessed with solitude and greed, collides in a nightmare with his own youth and his lost love. In this traditional theatrical adaptation of Charles Dickens’s story, Scrooge is visited by the spirits of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet to Come in A Christmas Carol. Carolers sing fragments of joyous Christmas songs in the corners of Scrooge’s mind as the audience accompanies him on the street and joins him on his dream-journey. The visiting spirits of Christmas force Scrooge to confront people and scenes from his life that remind him of his friendlessness – he even sees his home and his future corpse being rifled by his own servants. Finally, he awakens to the reality of Christmas morning and discovers the joy of giving, loving, and caring for others. The costumes, based on fashions of nineteenth-century London, provide color and texture against the abstract setting of Scrooge's life of greed and isolation.
