ORONO – Some Theatre Company will be presenting their production of “The Velveteen Rabbit” Dec. 15-18 at the Keith Anderson Community House in Orono; Elaine Bard directs Andrew Frodahl’s acclaimed adaptation of the classic children’s tale.

Performances will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7.00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m.

In this heart-warming story, a must-see for the whole family, the combination of love, devotion, and a little bit of “nursery magic” transform a beloved sawdust-filled toy into a real rabbit. Some Theatre Company’s Holiday production tells the timeless tale of the magic of childhood, and its ability to transcend reality with pure and uninhibited love.

This production is told through not only live action, but with the beauty and thrilling skill of puppetry. With a cast of 15, comprised of adults and children, this beautiful tale is suitable for all ages.

Additionally, Some Theatre Company will be offering a unique opportunity at the 10 a.m. show on Dec. 18. This performance will be a “Soft show,” geared primarily towards children and adults with special needs, disabilities and autism, as well as small children who often can’t sit still or be quiet for an extended period of time.

This performance will be tailored so that parents do not have to feel the pressure of telling their child to be quiet or to sit down in order to not disturb someone else. While children cannot run up and down the aisles or onto the stage, it is OK for them to stand up, move around and be vocal. We want to bring the joys of live theatre to those who may not feel they can otherwise attend.

Tickets for “The Velveteen Rabbit” are $10 for general admission; a special VIP Patron of the Arts Package is also available for $25.

“Real isn't how you are made,” said the Skin Horse. “It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become Real.”

(The Some Theatre Company box office can be reached at 356-6501 Monday – Friday from 10 a.m. -6 p.m. and up until two hours before performances.  Tickets and additional information are available at; please be aware that seating is limited.)
