In celebration of Beatrix Potter’s beloved children’s tales, a trio of actors captivates wide-eyed audiences as they bring to life the stories of Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck onstage. At the beginning of the performance, an actor, Bernard, stubbornly refuses to take part in the play and instead takes a seat in the auditorium to watch. The remaining cast members beckon enthusiastic children in the audience to help fill Bernard’s void and to hold their breath until Bernard apologizes. As youngsters watch and sometimes participate, Peter Rabbit grapples with the consequences of disobeying his mother’s orders about not eating out of Mr. McGregor’s garden, and Jemima Puddle-Duck narrowly avoids the dubious deeds of a fox in disguise.
