The Veleveteen Rabbit was written and directed by Katie Mangett. Music and lyrics by John Paul Sharp. The show was produced by the Curtains Up Theatre Company in Wheatridge, Colorado. Working with and for children was a new experience for me and I became so much better for it! We were able to sell out over ten performances.
Boy: (spoken) Oh, I’m getting sleepy. Are you sleepy too, Rabbit?
Rabbit: (spoken) Oh, yeah, I’m really tired too.
Boy: (sung) Gosh, what a day we had together
I can’t believe it’s already night
Now we must sleep and dream of the future
Just you and me for all time
Rabbit: (sung) This is all new, I can’t explain it
Feelings of love in my heart
I want to be in your warm hands forever
Please never let me go!
Boy & Rabbit:
Let’s make a pact never to leave one’s side
We will have many adventures but until then
Goodnight, my friend.
