Peter Rabbit hops to the Artscape this Easter

Cotton Tail (Sarah Holwill), Peter Rabbit (Mia Dippenaar) and Mopsy (Jenna Koller)

Beatrix Potter’s delightful story for children, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, will be at Artscape Theatre Foyer during the April Easter school holiday.

Mrs Rabbit lives in her cosy burrow underneath the roots of a very big fir tree. She has four little children, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-Tail who are good little bunnies and Peter, who was sometimes a bit naughty. Their neighbour, Mr McGregor, grows carrots, radishes and lettuce in his garden.

The rabbit family would love to go into Mr McGregor’s garden to eat the yummy vegetables but Mrs Rabbit has forbidden the bunnies to go into the garden as
their father has had an “accident” there.

One day, naughty Peter decides to explore, but instead of going to school, he goes to Mr McGregor’s garden

The Tale of Peter Rabbit is adapted by Dudley Glass, directed by Cheryl Abromowitz and assisted by Caryn Reznik
