Wild Swan Theater hops to it with 'Peter Rabbit'
As part of its 2010-2011 season, Wild Swan Theater presents a stage adaptation of Beatrix Potter's classic story, "Peter Rabbit."
When Peter Rabbit ventures into Farmer McGregor’s garden, despite his mother’s warning, his adventures begin. Little theatergoers will love following Peter Rabbit, from the moment he loses his little blue coat to Farmer McGregor’s scarecrow, until he arrives safe and sound at home.
Longtime Wild Swan favorite actress Sandy Ryder portrays Farmer McGregor and Mrs. Rabbit; Jeremy Salvatori plays Peter; and Michelle Trame Lanzi plays Benjamin Bunny and Squirrel Nutkin. David Mosher has created the musical score, which he performs on the fiddle.
Wild Swan continues its outreach to audience members with disabilities. The play is performed in American Sign Language as well as spoken English with the signing completely integrated into the production by Rebecca Brunner.
