The Wonderful Adventures of Brer Rabbit

A new musical by Peter Holland & Don Elliott

The Wonderful Adventures of Brer Rabbit is a delightful musical production about a wily rabbit who, with the help of his friend Brer Terrapin, uses his wits rather than his fists to outsmart Brer Fox, Brer Wolf, and Brer Bear.

As well as the whole family, the production features four of Joel Chandler Harris’ best loved stories – Wahoo, The Yalligator, The Moon in the Mill Pond, and of course, The Wonderful Tar Baby. The show teaches the important lesson that  just because one is small or slow, it doesn’t make them helpless… It is the quality of the mind that counts most and the quality of the heart. If a person has friends and some common sense, they may have some bad days, but they will bounce back and come out on top.

The production, while entertaining, also teaches another valuable life lesson. Our study guide features the concept of asset-based thinking. Brer Rabbit utilizes this concept when thinking of ways to get of the predicaments he finds himself in get out of his predicaments​ to save words. The show constantly reinforces that if one uses their wits to outfox their adversaries, they can get out of harm’s way without using violence.

Please note: This production was at an outdoor theatre with a permanent set. We had to adapt to that stage. We will have a wonderful set for this tour which will enhance the production more. Suitable for grades K-6 and fun for the whole family.

This is a more politically correct version than earlier incarnations and is a delight!

   A wonderfully appealing children’s show with a great message.
