Our Next Show


Peter Rabbit, Jemina Puddle Duck, and Mrs. Tittle Mouse all began as pets in Beatrix Potter's upstairs bedroom. With Victorian socialite parents and a brother at boarding school, young Beatrix found solace and comfort in her animal friends. Making up stories about these pets in her care helped Beatrix feel loved over the Christmas holiday. The playful stories later became popular books that continue to inspire generations of children. The imaginative world of Beatrix Potter will come to life in our Dress Up Theatre this holiday season. Come see our theatre actors tell a story of the young Beatrix Potter and her animal friends. Produced with permission from Plays for Young Audiences.
