WAYNESBORO >> The Trinity Players will perform four productions of "The Velveteen Rabbit: The Musical" April 24 through 26 in Harbaugh Hall inside Trinity United Church of Christ, 30 W. North St.

Adapted from Margery Williams' 1922 classic children's story, "The Velveteen Rabbit: The Musical" brings the book to life in a two-act play about love, loss and self-esteem, while remaining faithful to the spirit of Williams' original tale of a stuffed toy rabbit who longs to be made real through the magic of a little boy's enduring love. Though the most modest toy in the nursery, the rabbit learns about the joys and pain of becoming "real."

Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. April 24, 2 and 7 p.m. April 25 and 2 p.m. April 26.

Tickets are being sold inside the rear doors of the church from 4 to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Tickets are $10 for adlts, $5 for ages 11 and younger.

The cast includes children as young as the age of four, as well as adults from communities such as Waynesboro, Shippensburg and Greencastle.

The show is being produced by arrangement with Dramatic Publishing. For more information, e-mail or visit

About Trinity Players

For more than 50 years, Trinity Players have produced musicals and dramas for audiences to enjoy. For at least 20 years, the Costume Loft in the church's attic has helped community and school theater groups with loans of items for their productions.

Trinity Players began under the leadership of the Rev. Clay Moyer, who still acts as the group's guide. The Costume Loft is managed by Kay Yaukey.

Part evangelism and outreach, part educational and cultural opportunity, Trinity Players' productions address universal themes of humanity. Shows involve members of Trinity church and are open to community participation as well.
