Coming Soon: NUS Theatre Studies Presents “The Velveteen Rabbit”

February 13, 2012

Event: “The Velveteen Rabbit” by NUS Theatre Studies Programme (a commemorative 20th Anniversary Production)
Venue: Play Den @ The Arts House
Run: 15th – 17th March 2012

Message from NUS Theatre Studies Programme:

“The TS Program turns 20 this year.

For its 20th Anniversary Production, which Dr K K Seet will be producing as his swan song before he retires at long last, the play chosen is the stage adaptation of the canonical children’s classic, The Velveteen Rabbit.

A sweet, heartwarming and affirmative tale of identity, the redemptive power of love and what it means to be REAL to someone, The Velveteen Rabbit has special resonance in our postmodern world of meaningless, transactional relationships and the contemporary order of the simulacra.

A play of both commemorative and artistic value, it is suitable entertainment for both the entire family and avid patrons of the arts.

“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.”

“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.

“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.”

Keep an evening free on March 15 -17 and commemorate the 20th Anniversary of the TS Program with us.

Tickets are at $25 each, and a total of four shows are scheduled for:
8pm, March 15-17

The tickets can be collected at the door.

Neither refund nor exchange of tickets is allowed once purchase is confirmed.

The show is free seating.

Hoping to see you there!”
