SARASOTA, Fla. (SNN TV) — Today marks the opening of Florida Studio Theatre's The Velveteen Rabbit: A Toy Story.

The Velveteen Rabbit follows a character known as The Child, who's initially disappointed when she gets The Rabbit, a sawdust-filled toy, as a gift. But as the pair adventure through The Child’s storybooks, both of them grow, change and care for each other.

The production is part of a four-show Children's Theatre subscription package. Also included in the package are FST's annual holiday show Deck the Halls, Red Riding Hood, and The Power of Peanut Butter & Other Winning Plays.
