This Week At GAPT

Peter Rabbit

Mar 29 - Apr 16, Wed-Fri only at 10am

Peter Rabbit

Based on Beatrix Potter's classic story about a little rabbit that gets into Mr. McGregor's garden. Will the farmer find him? Will Peter find his way back to his loving family? Told entirely to music (no words) by lively hand puppets and a large rod puppet farmer. Laughs, suspense and fun, even for those who don't understand English. Recommended preschool - grade 3.
