The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
Are there any wrong turns in the quest for love?
December 12 - December 30, 2018
Edward Tulane is an expensive toy rabbit made of china, beloved by a girl named Abilene. But couldn’t care less—he’s vain and self-centered. When Edward is accidentally thrown overboard on an ocean voyage, he begins a miraculous journey, but he can’t move or speak—he’s a toy rabbit! Edward meets an elderly grieving couple who find comfort in Edward’s presence, a hobo and his dog, a farmer in need of a scarecrow, a sad little boy and his very ill sister, and finally a doll mender and an old doll who teach him an invaluable lesson—what it is to love, what it is to lose that love, and how to find the courage to love again. For audiences of all ages.
