Evergreen Family Theatre, The Rockville Public Library and Arts Center East are joining together to bring “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” performance to Connecticut. There will be two shows in the upper parking lot of the library (inside in case of bad weather): at 7:00 pm on Friday, Oct. 6, and 2:00 pm on Saturday, Oct. 7. Arts Center East is bringing in local artists to lead in the creation of crafts immediately before the performance. Children will create their very own craft to help light up the sky, AND (should they choose) their work will be on display at Arts Center East! Of course, your whole family will be talking about the show.
Seating, crafts, and light refreshments begin 1 hour before each show. Please register through this link, indicating the number of people coming. Everyone is welcome to join!
Edward Tulane is a porcelain toy rabbit. For his owner, Abilene, he is a beloved toy, but the rabbit is vain and only interested in himself. In an accident, Edward is cast to sea. This is where his real journey begins as he is welcomed into to the lives of his many new owners. Through this heartwarming journey, Edward learns about love, loss, kindness and compassion. Just like us he needs to experience these emotions to truly be alive.
The show is directed by Heather Auden, stage managed by Jim Ryan and stars Marie Altenor, Barbara Gallow, Jonathan Gonzalez, and Patryk Mathieu. Tickets for “The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane” are free thanks to the generous support of the Vernon Greater Together Community Fund and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. There is a suggested donation of $10 to ensure that events like this can continue for years to come.
