Please note, this page is for the 12pm performance of Peter Rabbit. For the 10am performance, please click here.

A dynamic music and storytelling experience for children and families based on Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

Brought to life by a narrator and a classical string quartet, Peter Rabbit’s Musical Adventure is a storytelling show adapting this timeless tale as an intimate music theatre experience for young ones, allowing children the opportunity to get up-close to the performers and experience classical music in an informal and stimulating way.

After each performance, there’s a chance to enjoy a Peter Rabbit Tea Party in the Corn Exchange Balcony Bar. Tea will include carrot sticks, sandwiches and assorted mini cakes, with a drink included.

First performed at Waterperry Opera Festival 2018.

Recommended ages: 4-8 years.
