Everyone's favorite china rabbit is back!
"DiCamillo has carved out a distinct place as one of her generation's most beloved writers."
About the Show
Everyone’s favorite vain and haughty china rabbit is back on the Synchronicity stage. His vest is buttoned tight and his gold pocket watch is set, but who might he be now? Oh, it’s just old Edward Tulane.
But just for now. He’ll have to battle the high seas, pass through the hands of a fisherman, befriend a happy hobo, comfort a sick child on his not-so-planned adventure to find his way home.
Based on Kate DiCamillo’s award-winning novel, and adapted by Dwayne Hartford, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane takes us on an unexpected magical journey to discover the transformative powers of love.
