The Velveteen Rabbit
by Burgess Clark
Based on the book by Margery Williams
Directed by Kirsten Boyd
Written for the Boston Children’s Theatre, Burgess Clark’s adaption of “The Velveteen Rabbit” brings a heartwarming story of unconditional love between a boy and his toy bunny and a story of how love can make one “real.” Presented by the City of Fairfax Theatre Company and Truro Anglican Church, “The Velveteen Rabbit” brings love, magic and joy this holiday season.

“The Little Match Girl”
Story by Hans Christian Andersen
Adaption by Jack Neary 
Directed by David Britt
CFTC and Truro Anglican Church present a relevant, contemporary spin on the Hans Christian Andersen holiday classic. Packed with meaning and important issues facing our communities, “The Little Match Girl” is a magical story with humor and compassion appropriate for the holiday season.
