The imagination of young Beatrix Potter comes alive when we find her home for the holidays with nothing but her brother Bertram and her imagination to make Christmas as wonderful as it should be. In this original play about the life of young Beatrix Potter, her dreams and drawings come alive in the form of Peter Rabbit, Jemima Puddle-Duck and many others as they all work together to imagine the best Christmas possible!

“Beatrix Potter’s Christmas is a musical with enough whimsical characters to make Scrooge smile.” -Daily News, MN
