Photo Flash: Jim Stanek, John Curcuru to Lead Off-Broadway's THE VELVETEEN RABBIT

This season, Off-Broadway's acclaimed DR2 Kids Theatre (Daryl Roth, Producer) has partnered with Theatreworks USA (Barbara Pasternack, Artistic Director; Ken Arthur, Producing Director), the nation's leading not-for-profit professional theatre for young audiences, to present "Rabbit Season" at the DR2 Kids Theatre.

"Rabbit Season" features two celebrated live stage productions for kids, each of which will play a limited ten-week engagement at Off-Broadway's DR2 Theatre, located in the heart of Union Square at 103 East 15th Street.

The season kicks off this November with the new stage play based on the beloved children's tale, THE VELVETEEN RABBIT. Get a first look at the cast in the photos below!

The Off-Broadway cast for THE VELVEETEN RABBIT includes Broadway veteran Jim Stanek (Indescretions, ...Forum, Little Women), John Curcuru (reprising his role from the recent National Touring production) and Kristin Parker (Theatreworks USA's A Christmas Carol, Off-Broadway's Pinkalicious), all of whom appear in a variety of roles.

THE VELVETEEN RABBIT is a joyous testament to the eternal power of a child's imagination. This classic tale comes to life for a whole new generation in a wonder-filled production created by Kevin Del Aguila.

With a little bit of nursery magic (and a whole lot of audience participation), three actors and their simple props transform into a wise old rocking horse, a cavalcade of mechanical playthings, a kind-hearted fairy and, of course, a stuffed rabbit who is transformed by the love of a young boy.

THE VELVETEEN RABBIT is written and directed by Drama Desk Award nominee Kevin Del Aguila (Altar Boyz; Click, Clack, Moo) and based on the popular children's novel by Margery Williams. The production features scenic design by Lake Simmons and costume design by Patrick Johnson.

Recommended for ages 4-8, THE VELVETEEN RABBIT begins performances on Friday, November 16, 2012 and officially opens on Sunday, November 18 (4 p.m.). The production concludes its limited engagement on Sunday, January 27, 2013.
