‘Peter Rabbit and Me’ comes back to the National Children’s Theatre

Everyone’s favourite rabbit comes to life in Peter Rabbit and Me for another season at the National Children’s Theatre (NCT).

NCT will present the story of how one of the most beloved children’s stories of all time, the story of Peter Rabbit, came to be written. This is set to be a production filled with fun, adventure and, with Peter in the story, a ton of mischief.

The story of the world’s most well-loved rabbit

Join young Beatrix Potter and her brave brother as they each wish for something different to happen in their lives. Her brother hates the idea of going off to boarding school. Beatrix is sad that her best friend, her brother, is being sent off while she is stuck in the dreary nursery room with her governess. Fortunately, she is a resourceful child and is able to make the most of her boring and dispiriting nursery and the restrictions of the way wealthy families brought up their children in the 1800s, to another world where imagination can run riot. So, Beatrix enjoys spending her time creating adventures for Peter and his family. And Peter does have adventures – and does get into trouble! Fortunately, Beatrix is in charge of the story and is able to plan his rescue: all is under control.

Peter Rabbit and Me is a valuable story. It teaches us that no matter our circumstances, we can not only think up an alternate world with nothing but a little imagination, we can implement it too.
